Palermo confirm De Zerbi stay

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed Roberto De Zerbi will remain as the club's coach despite their poor run of form.

The Sicily-based club have lost their last seven matches in Serie A, with their last victory in the competition coming against Atalanta in September.

The Rosanero have a reputation for changing managers on a regular basis, but Zamparini has now confirmed that De Zerbi, who only took over as coach in September, will remain at the Stadio Renzo Barbera for the foreseeable future.

A statement from Zamparini on the club's official website read: "In order to avoid news that is untrue, despite an extremely difficult time and extremely negative results of the team – after carefully reviewing the performance yesterday with many issues and some positive notes in the performance of our players – I talked to our Mr. De Zerbi and I want to continue working with him, even if the path to salvation will be difficult."

Palermo have slipped to the bottom of the league standings following Sunday's 1-0 home defeat to Lazio, but they will be looking to return to winning ways in their next match, when they take on Serie B outfit Spezia in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.
