Palermo chief confirms Coach Gattuso

Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini has announced the appointment of Gennaro Gattuso as the club’s new tactician.

“Gattuso is our Coach for next season,” the President told Ita Sport Press. “I can confirm that officially. A club statement will soon be released on the matter.

“We are happy to have such an important personality as Gattuso on our bench, someone who has written important chapters in the history of Italian football.

“I’m sure that with his great experience he will take us immediately back into Serie A.”

Gattuso, who joined Sion from Milan last summer, has limited coaching experience seeing as he took charge of 10 games this term while acting as a player-Coach in Switzerland.

The 35-year-old replaces Giuseppe Sannino after the former Siena boss asked to leave the outfit following relegation to Serie B.
