Amid reports Giuseppe Sannino has told Palermo he wants to leave, general manager Giorgio Perinetti admits “there are some problems.”
The Coach had started the season in Sicily, was fired after three games and brought back for the final month when it had become very difficult to avoid relegation.
Reports circulated this afternoon that Sannino had told Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini he was intent on quitting the club, as there is interest from Hellas Verona and Genoa.
“The situation is clear, Sannino has another year left on his contract, but there are some problems,” confessed Palermo general manager Perinetti.
“Does he want to leave? Many are writing that, so... We will meet up again and discuss matters on Monday.
“It is a very delicate moment, because obviously it is going to create problems for us. We absolutely cannot leave the bench empty.
“We have no reason to let Sannino go and Zamparini has always said he’d want to focus on him even if we went into Serie B.
“I can say Palermo are an important club and between offers and suggestions we have a list of 16 potential Coaches. That means that despite the relegation, Palermo still represents a place everyone wants to work in.”
