Malesani sacked by Palermo
Serie A strugglers Palermo have sacked Alberto Malesani after just three games and reappointed Gian Piero Gasperini 20 days after he left the club.
Former Genoa boss Malesani became Palermo's third coach of the season when Gasperini was dismissed on February 4 but, with the Sicilians still rooted to the bottom of the table, Rosanero president Maurizio Zamparini has changed his mind.
A statement published on palermocalcio.it read: "Palermo can confirm they have relieved Alberto Malesani of his duties and reappointed Gian Piero Gasperini.
"There is considerable regret because Alberto Malesani is a fine person and a great coach.
"We thank him for all the work he has done. The decision that has been taken seemed the only viable one at this difficult time."
