Palermo sack manager Alberto Malesani after three games in charge to bring back former boss Gian Piero Gasperini.

Palermo have sacked manager Alberto Malesani after three games in charge to bring back former boss Gian Piero Gasperini.

Malesani's future was called into question on Saturday night as a goalless draw with Genoa left the club at the bottom of the Serie A table.

Gasperini, who was dismissed at the start of the month following a five-month spell with the side, has now made a return to the Stadio Renzo Barbera.

"We have regret considering Malesani is a good person and an excellent coach. We thank him for his efforts," read a Palermo statement.

"The decision made seems to be the only one to take in this difficult moment."

Palermo have now had three managers this season, with Giuseppe Sannino overseeing first-team matters from June until September of last year.
