The Sicilian club has decided to sack Roberto De Zerbi.
The young tactician only achieved one victory in 13 matches as coach. Maurizio Zamparini and Guglielmo Micciché had in recent days supported the under fire De Zerbi, however Palermo’s loss in the Coppa Italia to Serie B side Spezia seems to have been the tipping point.
Eugenio Corini has been picked to take over first team duties, according to Sky Sport Italia. The ex-Chievo Verona coach hasn’t held a position in two years but performed modestly with the Flying Donkeys for two season.
In any case, the uphill battle for Palermo will continue with already their third coach of the season.
