Official: Palermo sack De Zerbi

Tonight’s Coppa Italia defeat to Spezia was the last straw for Palermo Coach Roberto De Zerbi, with Eugenio Corini replacing him.

The Rosanero have lost every Serie A game at the Barbera this season, and were knocked out of the Coppa Italia at home to the Serie B side this afternoon.

Having been given a stay of execution earlier this week, President Maurizio Zamparini has finally lost patience with his Coach.

"Having assessed the situation of the first team, the club feels compelled to change Coach and has entrusted the first team to Eugenio Corini," a statement from Palermo confirmed.

It's the third change of the season, with Davide Ballardini sacked after two games to make way for De Zerbi.
