Former AC Milan and Rangers midfielder, Gennaro Gattuso, has been sacked by Palermo after just six matches in charge of the Italian second division side.

Gattuso took charge in the summer, after being sacked by Swiss side, Sion. Gattuso won just two matches in charge, and has been replaced by Giuseppe Iachini.

Palermo president, Maurizio Zamparini, told reporters: "His first serious coaching position was perhaps too big a responsibility at a club as demanding as Palermo.

"The results have proved us wrong."

Palermo have changed managers 32 times since 2000 - that's around one every four months, which is pretty incredible.

Zamparini was hoping Gattuso could guide Palermo back to Serie A after their relegation last season, but after seven points from the opening six games, Zamparini made the decision to sack him, making the former Italian international the 42nd man to be sacked by the 72-year-old.

Last season Palermo had three coaches, two of which were sacked before being re-hired by Zamparini, and this season doesn’t look any different.
