Rossi exits Palermo – again

Palermo have parted ways with manager Delio Rossi for the second time this season, the Serie A club announced on Wednesday.Despite having led the Sicilian club to the final of the Coppa Italia and a seventh-placed league finish – earning Palermo a Europa League berth in the process – Rossi finds himself jobless once more.

Rossi first took the manager position at Palermo in November 2009, guiding the club to fifth in the Serie A standings at the end of the season.

His first tenure at the club came to an end in February after a 7-0 home loss to Udinese. But when replacement Serse Cosmi could not revive the club’s fortunes, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini re-appointed Rossi to the role.

Palermo’s 3-1 defeat in the Coppa Italia has proved to be the final responsibility for Rossi, with the manager and the club reportedly failing to agree on a new deal.

“President Maurizio Zamparini and coach Delio Rossi met today to review their positions. They decided by mutual consent not to continue their working relationship,” Palermo said in a statement.
