​Palermo coach resigns and De Zerbi appointed

Palermo have appointed Roberto de Zerbi as their new coach after Davide Ballardini resigned just two games into the new Serie A season.

The 37 year old previously managed Foggia but left the third-division side in August after two seasons with the club.

Ballardini was initially sacked as Palermo manager in January 2016 before being reappointed in April as he helped Palermo avoid relegation.
