Palermo chairman Maurizio Zamparini has praised new coach Roberto De Zerbi for the way in which the team is playing.
De Zerbi replaced Davide Ballardini on the Rosanero bench as the managerial merry-go-round continues at the Sicilian club.
Zamparini is the most trigger-happy owner in Italian football and made an incredible seven managerial changes throughout last season.
Ballardini and Giuseppe Iachini both had two spells in charge and it was thought that the former might keep his job this term after guiding the club to Serie A safety last season.
However, he was replaced by De Zerbi and, despite a return of just one point from two games to date, the controversial owner feels he finally has the right man.
"I liked his philosophy and I saw the lads happy to go out on to the pitch," he told Corriere dello Sport. "There's a project which we can work on, but of course results count, too. The coach has already made his mark on the squad though, and it has been positive.
"Finally, after five years, Palermo are really trying to play football."
