Giuseppe Sannino became the first coaching casualty of the Serie
A season Sunday after being sacked by Palermo.
Palermo have drawn once and been defeated twice in their three
league matches so far.
On Saturday, they looked set for their first win until Cagliari
levelled in the 64th minute.
Palermo said in a statement on their website that Sannino would
be replaced by Gian Piero Gasperini.
"Giuseppe Sannino has been released from his post," the club said
in a statement.
"At the same time we would like to announce the appointment of of
Gian Piero Gasperini who will take his first coaching session
with the team on Tuesday."
Sannino, formerly of Siena, had only joined Palermo during the
Gasperino made his name in Italian football coaching Genoa from
2006-2010. He then moved on to Inter Milan for 2011, before being
sacked after three months in charge.
