Palermo, Corini’s bench in limbo: Fabio Grosso the first choice

Explain in brief the following article:

For the first time this season, Palermo coach Eugenio Corini is at risk of being sacked. Manchester is increasingly convinced of relieving him of his duties. The defeat against Pisa, 4-3, after the break for international matches was too heavy.

The first name to replace him is Fabio Grosso, former Palermo player. He coached Frosinone last season, winning the Serie B championship, but his venture in France with Lyon this year was not successful. The management is trying to convince him to take over mid-season (with seven games left plus potential playoffs), but Grosso, a former World Cup champion with the Italian National Team, would prefer to start next year.

Other names in the running are Gattuso and Giampaolo. The former was sacked this season by Marseille, while the latter has been out of work for over a year after his experience at Sampdoria. Moreno Longo’s profile is also being considered, but he was sacked by Como at the start of the season.

Andrea Sottil’s profile was also evaluated, but it was ruled out due to an agreement between Serie B and Assocalciatori preventing coaches who have been sacked from coaching in the lower division if they were sacked from Serie A in the same season.

The search for potential replacements for Eugenio Corini has begun, with Grosso being the favorite candidate. It will be a day of deep reflection with the looming sacking of the Brescia coach.
