PLAYERS: Gennaro Gattuso
Former World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso has been hired to coach Serie B club Palermo. The Sicilian club announced Wednesday that it has hired the former midfielder to a one-year deal with the option of a two-year renewal. The 35-year-old Gattuso, who won the 2006 World Cup with Italy, was promoted to player-coach of Swiss club Sion in February but lasted just 13 matches in charge. He left Sion with one year remaining on his playing contract, having joined the club a year ago after 13 seasons with AC Milan. Palermo was relegated last season.
