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