Palermo out of Serie B?

Palermo could be replaced by Venezia in Serie B after they failed to register in time for next season.

The likes of Gianluca Di Marzio, Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb report Palermo did not deposit their papers before Tuesday’s deadline of 23:00 BST.

As it stands, the Rosanero will be denied entry in the second tier and replaced by Venezia, who lost their relegation playout to Salernitana.

However, Di Marzio and Sportitalia have since followed up that club directors maintain they sent the necessary documents a minute before the cut-off point.

Official: Udinese sign Jajalo

Udinese have officially signed Bosnia-Herzegovina international midfielder Mato Jajalo from Palermo.

The Friulani announced the deal this afternoon, signing on until June 2022.

It’s a free transfer for the 31-year-old, as his contract with Palermo is set to expire on June 30.

He had been in Sicily since January 2015, but also had an earlier spell in Italy with Siena in 2010-11.

Cosmi: 'Makes me want to vomit'

Venezia Coach Serse Cosmi did not hold back after losing a relegation playout to Salernitana. “I want to vomit. They wanted blood and they got it.”

The Serie B playout wasn’t going to go ahead at all, but was hastily rearranged after Palermo won their appeal against demotion to last place for financial irregularities.

Instead, the Sicilians were only docked 20 points, leaving them mid-table.

Official: Palermo hire Marino

Palermo have officially appointed former Udinese and Genoa boss Pasquale Marino as their new Coach.

A statement on Palermo’s official website confirms Marino has signed a two-year contract.

The Sicilian is much-travelled as a Coach and has already managed four teams on the island, among them the Rosanero’s arch-rivals Catania.

The 56-year-old led Spezia to the promotion playoffs with a sixth-place finish in Serie B last season, but they lost to finalists Cittadella in the first round.

Sportitlaia writes Jajalo will join Udinese once his contract at Palermo expires the end of the month.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has long been on the agenda for the Zebrette, who failed in a late bid to bring him in last summer.

Serie B: Palermo avoid relegation

Palermo have partially won an appeal against their demotion to Serie C, as they are ‘only’ docked 20 points for financial irregularities and therefore stay in Serie B.

They had originally been demoted to last place and therefore relegated.

This means that the Rosanero, who had been due to take part in the promotion play-offs before the court case, have enough points under their belt to stay in Serie B next season.

They did have 63 points during the regular 2018-19 season, so go down to 43 points and are mid-table.

Foggia lose Serie B appeal

Foggia are set to start next season in Serie C after they lost their appeal for a six-point deduction to be lifted.

Foggia had sent the appeal following Palermo’s demotion for financial irregularities.

However, CONI appeals court chief Franco Frattini ruled on Friday that the original verdict would stand.

Consequently, there will be no need for playouts, with the Rossoneri finishing a point behind Salernitana in 16th place.

Palermo expect playoffs delay

Palermo say they ‘expect’ the Serie B playoffs to be suspended while they appeal their demotion to the third tier.

Palermo are in the process of having their relegation overturned, but the situation has been complicated by their third-place finish in Serie B, which should have seen them compete in the playoffs.

“We expect the playoffs to be suspended by tomorrow’s Federal Council,” President Alessandro Albanese told reporters.
