Gasperini sacked by Palermo

Updated: February 4, 2013

Palermo decided to part ways with manager
Gian Piero Gasperini on Monday with the club sitting tied with Siena at the
bottom of the Serie A table.

The announcement comes one day after Palermo extended its winless streak in
league play to nine games with a 2-1 home defeat to Atalanta.

Palermo has also crashed out of the Coppa Italia at the hands of Serie B side
Hellas Verona.

Gasperini took over at Palermo in September for Giuseppe Sannino, and he
leaves the side four points from safety.
