Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini is convinced Rino Gattuso will be a great coach.
"He is just one of the options, but around 16 different tacticians have come forward offering their services, so Gattuso is the 17th," Zamparini told Radio Radio.
"I am known for sacking Coaches, yet they all want to come here even in Serie B. I'd have liked to have Gattuso play for us at the end of his career, as I like everything about the man. He doesn't have much coaching experience, but he played for many years.
"I hope, if we get him, that he could become like Conte. In any case, Gattuso is not the only alternative. Beppe Iachini is free, Giampiero Ventura would like to return, while Giuseppe Sannino could reconsider."
