Gasperini axed by Palermo

Palermo have reportedly sacked boss Gian Piero Gasperini and transfer chief Pietro Lo Monaco may soon be following him through the exit.

Rosanero President Maurizio Zamparini took the night to consider his options and it is believed that he’s axed his tactician.

Gasp, dismissed by Inter last term, replaced Giuseppe Sannino after the Week 3 draw at Cagliari. He collected three wins, seven draws and 10 defeats.

Palermo, bottom of the table, lost 2-1 against Atalanta at the weekend.

Who will replace Gasperini will depend on whether Lo Monaco keeps his job. If he does then Pasquale Marino could be appointed.

Alberto Malesani is another possible contender for the hotseat. He may be hired if Giorgio Perinetti is re-appointed as the club’s director general in place of Lo Monaco.
