Novellino confirms Palermo deal

Walter Novellino confirms he’s down to “the final details” with Palermo.

The former Sampdoria Coach has agreed to take over the Rosanero in the wake of Beppe Machine’s resignation due to a row with President Maurizio Zamparini.

“We’ve found an agreement,” Novellino confirmed to Grifo Tube.

“Tomorrow we’ll see each other to sort out the final details. I can’t see any stumbling blocks, I just have to resolve things with Modena.

“Palermo is a big club and a beautiful challenge, I’m happy.”

Novellino will become the seventh different Coach to sit on the Barbera bench this season, and the eighth change overall after Iachini was fired twice.
