Devis Mangia is ready to take charge of Palermo.

Mangia has stepped up from the youth team after the sacking of Stefano Pioli.

"I certainly don't feel like a caretaker manager, as otherwise I'd be working with the wrong spirit," said the 37-year-old.

"I feel the respect of the club, the President and directors. I was in the right place at the right time when these circumstances aligned."
