Official: Palermo appoint Novellino

Palermo have officially confirmed Walter Novellino as their new Coach, the eighth change this season.

The Rosanero have had a chaotic last few months, compounded by the resignation of Beppe Iachini this week, just two games after being recalled following his sacking earlier this season.

It emerged yesterday that Novellino was the favourite to take over, and the former Sampdoria boss has now been officially confirmed.

“US Citta di Palermo announces that Walter Novellino is the new Coach of the first team,” a statement on the club’s official website began.

“The Coach, born in Montemarano on June 4, 1953 has previously taken charge of Napoli, Torino and Sampdoria among others.

“This afternoon he will take his first training session.”
