Palermo sack Rossi, hire Cosmi

Serse Cosmi is the new Palermo boss after Delio Rossi was unsurprisingly sacked on Monday evening.

Rossi was all set for the chop after Sunday's humiliating 7-0 home defeat to in-form Udinese.

A furious President Maurizio Zamparini claimed yesterday that Rossi had just a one per cent chance of remaining.

After interviewing numerous candidates on Monday, Zamparini has now taken the decision to show Rossi the door.

Cosmi, who made his name in Serie A with Perugia, has officially been appointed by the Rosanero.

The new Coach will be presented to the media on Tuesday at Rome's Borghesiana training facility.
