Gattuso To Coach Palermo

Palermo club president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed on Monday that former Italy and AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso will coach his side in Serie B next season,

"I like Gattuso a lot and he will be the next coach of Palermo," Zamparini told Radio 2 in an interview.

Guttuso comes to Palermo after being fired as a player-coach at Swiss club Sion this season.

And the former midfield hard man will have to watch his step once more as he finds himself under another unpredictable boss in Zamparini, but it is something he has become used to in Switzerland.

The former midfielder, famous for his crunching tackles, was one of five Sion coaches to be fired this season by Christian Constantin who has employed around 30 managers since taking over for a second stint in 2002.

Palermo were relegated from Serie A this season after Zamparini used three different coaches, two of them twice.

At one point he fired Gian Piero Gasperini, replaced him with Alberto Malesani for three games and then brought back Gasperini before sacking him after two matches.
