Palermo have appointed former Roma and Chievo manager Luigi Del Neri as their new coach.

He replaces Francesco Guidolin, who decided to stand down even though newly-promoted Palermo finished sixth in the table to qualify for next season’s UEFA Cup.

Del Neri was in charge of Porto at the start of last season but he quit within weeks of his appointment. He moved to Roma but has been out of work since leaving the club in March.
