Sannino will be at the helm for the second match in his second stint of the season at the club, having been fired after the first three games of the championship.

Since then, Palermo, joint bottom with Pescara on 21 points, have employed Gian Piero Gasperini twice, the second spell lasting two matches, and also put Alberto Toresani in charge for three games in between.

"The most serious mistake I made was firing Sannino," said Palermo's volatile president Maurizio Zamparini.

"But that was a different Sannino and his relationship with the team was not positive."
