Former Palermo coach Delio Rossi is impressed by what Devis Mangia is achieving at his old club.

Mangia has collected six points from the opening three rounds of the season.

"Mangia? Since his relationship with [Sean] Sogliano, it was predictable that Palermo would choose to bet on him. I like him.

"He has the advantage of being able to work in a situation where, even for the sake of novelty, it will examine the merits of the young Coach," said Rossi.
