Rome: Italy's 2006 World Cup winning midfielder Gennaro Gattuso will take charge of relegated Palermo next season, the club's president Maurizio Zamparini announced on Monday.

"Once the dispute with (under contract boss Giuseppe) Sannino concludes, he (Gattuso) will be able to be our coach," Zamparini told Radio 2 listeners, confirming news already brought to light by the Italian press.

Palermo were relegated to the second tier after finishing third-bottom in Serie A this past campaign, ending a nine-year stay in the top-flight.
