Report: Palermo get Novellino

Reports suggest Walter Novellino has agreed to become Palermo Coach until the end of the season.

The Rosanero have had a chaotic season, even by their standards, and current Coach Beppe Iachini has handed in his resignation after a furious row with President Maurizio Zamparini.

Former Sampdoria boss Novellino admitted earlier today that he was hoping to take over on the Barbera bench, and now Sky is reporting that a deal has been struck.

The tactician will take over until the end of the season, as he seeks to save Palermo from relegation, with the club just one point above the drop zone.

Counting caretakers, Novellino will become the seventh different man to take charge of the Rosanero this season, following Iachini, Davide Ballardini, Fabio Viviani, Guillermo Schelotto, Giovanni Tedesco and Giovanni Bosi.
