Gennaro Gattuso fired by Palermo

Gennaro Gattuso’s reign as coach of Italian Serie B club Palermo has ended after just six matches, the Italy 2006 World Cup winner being relieved of his duties on Wednesday.

Gennaro Gattuso's future at Palermo is under question.
Gennaro Gattuso has been replaced at Palermo by Giuseppe Iachini.

Gattuso, whose only previous coaching experience was with Swiss club Sion last season, paid the price for back-to-back defeats to Spezia and Bari, results which left the Rosaneri in 13th place, seven points adrift of the league's summit.

“It is with truly profound sadness that I announce that I have relieved Gennaro Gattuso of his duties as first-team coach,” wrote club president Maurizio Zamparini in a statement on the club’s website. “I am left with regret due to the respect I have towards Gattuso and the great efforts he put into his work.

“Sadly for me and for him, together, we have maybe bitten off more than we could chew for his first coaching role in a club, a place so demanding as Palermo. The results have proven us wrong.”

The demanding nature of the role of Palermo coach is reflected by the fact Gattuso becomes the 38th coach to be fired by Zamparini. His replacement is Giuseppe Iachini, who brings with him many years of experience in the second tier of Italian football, guiding Chievo, Brescia and Sampdoria to promotion in recent seasons.

“I have vested in Giuseppe Iachini the responsibility of leading us into Serie A,” continued Zamparini. “He’s a coach and a man I know and appreciate since he was captain of Venezia, who we led into Serie A.”

Indeed, before taking the presidency of Palermo, Zamparini was responsible for Venezia’s rise to the top-flight. He changed coach six times in three years to get there and has now replaced his coach a total of 44 times in 25 years as a club president.
