Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini says he's yet to decide on the identity of next season's coach.
Bortolo Mutti has already accepted he won't keep the job when the campaign ends.
Vincenzo Montella and Giuseppe Sannino have been linked with the job and Zamparini spoke to Italian radio.
"The Coach of Palermo will not be Montella, as he's going to Roma. Sannino is the boss of Siena. I've got a scoop for you - I'll be the Coach next season! It'll be the big novelty of 2012-13," he joked.
