Gian Piero Gasperini could be sacked by Palermo after today’s 2-1 home defeat to Atalanta, as Pasquale Marino and Edy Reja in pole position.
The Sicilians plummeted to joint last place with Siena, who have a six-point penalty this season.
Since Gasperini took over from Giuseppe Sannino in mid-September, Palermo have earned only three victories, seven draws and 10 defeats.
According to the latest reports, former Catania Coach Marino is in the running for the position.
Ex-Lazio boss Reja would be the favourite, but is seemingly not convinced by the security of the project in Sicily.
Palermo have called a Press silence after today’s home loss to Atalanta.
