Palermo confirm in an official statement that manager Gian Piero Gasperini has been relieved of his duties after failing to win any of his last 10 games in charge.

Palermo have confirmed in an official statement that coach Gian Piero Gasperini has been sacked following Sunday's defeat to Atalanta.

The Serie A strugglers slipped to joint-bottom of the table in a 2-1 home defeat to Atalanta last weekend, a result that made it nine matches without a win for the Sicilians.

Palermo have decided to sack their second manager of the season after the loss, despite Gasperini being absent from the touchline on Sunday due to a suspension.

A statement on the club's website read: "Palermo announce that we have relieved Gian Piero Gasperini of his first-team duties.

"The name of the new coach will be announced tomorrow."

Former Fiorentina boss Alberto Malesani has emerged as the early favourite to take the job.
