Shocking: Serie A Club Palermo Owner Zamparini Appoints 9th Coach Of The Season
Italian Serie A side Palermo have secured the services of their ninth coach of the season following the appointment of Davide Ballardini as new manager, after club owner Maurizio Zamparini fired Walter Novellino.
Novellino’s last game was the 3-0 home loss to Lazio in the league as he paid the price for leading the team to just one point from four games thus leaving the club in the relegation zone with six games left this season.
Ballardini returns for a second spell at the club this season after being sacked in January making it the second time this campaign Zamparini has re-appointed a manager he had fired.
He also re-hired Guiseppe Iachini in February having sacked him in November though the 75-year old owner has confirmed that Ballardini’s job will be safe even if Palermo are relegated.
