Gasperini out again as Palermo boss

Palermo, Italy (Sports Network) - Palermo manager Gian Piero Gasperini has left the club for a second time in six weeks, while the team prepares to make a fifth managerial change this term.

In what is fast becoming a comedy of errors at the Stadio Renzo Barbera, Gasperini departs the club by mutual consent only 15 days and two matches after he was reinstated on Feb. 24.

The 55-year-old was brought back after Alberto Malesani's brief 19-day reign, which started on February 5 and comprised only three games, but a goalless draw at Torino and Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to relegation rivals Siena have persuaded the former Inter Milan boss to move on.

"After a meeting between administrative director Giorgio Perinetti and Gian Piero Gasperini, Palermo can announce it has reached an agreement for a consensual termination of the coach's contract," the club said in a statement on its official website. "The owner has tasked the director with assessing who should take control of the first-team squad."

Palermo are currently tied for last place in Italy's top flight with Pescara on 21 points, five from safety.
