It's official. Palermo's delightfully zanyowner Maurizio Zamparini has gone and sacked coach Giuseppe Iachini for the THIRDtimethisseason, which surely must be some sort of record.

Palermo had actually managed to haul themselves off the foot of the Serie A since the last time we dipped in, but a run of seven games without a win has seen coach Iachini who was only brought back into the fold in late January succumb to Zamparini's infamously sensitive trigger finger once again.

Iachini was in charge at the Italian club for just over two years, a timeframe fairly impressive considering chairman Maurizio Zamparini's willingness to fire managers frequently.
