Mangia faces mentor Sannino

Palermo-Siena sees former assistant Devis Mangia challenge his mentor Giuseppe Sannino.

The two men worked together at Varese in Serie B last season, as Sannino was the Coach and Mangia chief of the youth team.

They went their separate ways to make their top flight debuts and now come face-to-face at the Stadio Barbera.

“It was a very professional rapport, as we didn't really socialise with each other after work,” revealed Palermo Coach Mangia.

“I might make some slight adjustments, but I don't think there will be anything too shocking. It is an important game, but only because it is the next appointment.

“We are playing against a Siena side that likes good football and can count on quality individuals.”

Palermo squad: Benussi, Brichetto, Tzorvas; Aguirregaray, Balzaretti, Cetto, Mantovani, Munoz, Pisano, Silvestre; Acquah, Bacinovic, Barreto, Bertolo, Della Rocca, Ilicic, Lores, Migliaccio, Zahavi; Hernandez, Miccoli, Pinilla
