Gasperini leaves Palermo...again

Palermo have officially announced that Coach Gian Piero Gasperini has agreed to mutually terminate his contract.

The Rosanero lost a relegation six-pointer against Siena yesterday, which left them five points adrift from safety at the bottom of Serie A.

And President Maurizio Zamparini has decided to release the tactician for the second time this term.

Gasperini was sacked on February 4 to be replaced by Alberto Malesani, only to be re-hired 19 days later by the Sicilian side.

A statement on their website read: “Palermo Soccer, at the end of a meeting between director Giorgio Perinetti and Gian Piero Gasperini, can announce that there has been an agreement to mutually terminate the contract of the Coach.”

Reports have suggested that Giuseppe Sannino, who himself was sacked by Palermo on week three of this season, could, remarkably, be re-hired.
