Palermo have named Gian Piero Gasperini as new coach.
Gasperini replaces Giuseppe Sannino, who was sacked after yesterday's 1-1 draw with Cagliari.
â€śSannino did not have the team in hand and didnâ€™t believe in our chances because he couldnâ€™t keep hold of it,â€ť president Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Radio.
â€śHe was meant to be The General, but he didnâ€™t manage it. He wasnâ€™t in sync with the side and I noted the players didnâ€™t go towards him to celebrate when they scored the goal.
â€śSanninoâ€™s sides were famous for their determination, character and hard work, but I didnâ€™t see any of those characteristics against difficult opponents.
â€śAt times just five games are enough to evaluate a tactician. I focused on promising young Coaches because I cannot afford big stars. If I could, then Iâ€™d call someone like Antonio Conte.
â€śIn my view, he got the pre-season fitness training wrong too. I didnâ€™t decide it, but it was all down to his staff. He got everything wrong.
â€śIn fact, I think it is a shame for modern football that a Coach needs another four collaborators. Now I have to pay five men, plus Gasperiniâ€™s staff.â€ť
Under Italian rules, Sannino cannot take charge of a different Serie A side during the same season and Zamparini must continue paying his contract until they can agree a mutual rescission.
