The struggling Serie A Palermo has hired Uruguayan Diego Lopez as new coach, replacing Eugenio Corini and making it Palermo's 11th coaching change in two seasons.Â Winning just 2 games out of 21, 42 year old Diego took on the job to revive the mighty Palermo who sits just two points above bottom ofÂ the table.
Eugenio Corini was named as Palermo's coach in November 2016, their third that season in fact. After just 7 games in charge, Corini a former Palermo player himself took the decision to resign as coach after winning just one game in 7. His decision came just two days after Palermo were beaten 1-0 at home by Inter Milan.

In mid-December, Maurizio Zamparini-the current President of U.S. Citta di Palermo-wrote an open letter to fans, letting them know that he was in the process of looking for a new buyer for the football club. The letter discussed the current financial state of the union at Palermo, as well as what Zamparini clearly sees as an unfair financial inequity between Italy's top soccer organizations. Finally, Zamparini said that he was looking for "an Arabian, Chinese, or Russian millionaire who can afford to lose money," stating that he can no longer afford to sink his own money into the Eagles.

U.S. Citta di Palermo fans got a treat on June 30th, as the Italian football club unveiled a slew of new kit designs for the 2015 2016 season. Rather than separating the launches of their various kits as other clubs have done, the Eagles opted to publicly unveil all of their new jerseys at the same time. Soccer Box already has stock available of the new Palermo kit 2015 - 2016 home and away jersey designs, while new versions of the team's third jersey and goalkeeper shirt have also been introduced.
Once again, Palermo's official jerseys come from Joma, serving their second year as the soccer club's kit manufacturer. Previously, Palermo had worked with Puma (from 2012 through last year) and Legea (from 2010 to 2012), while Lotto was the football club's kit manufacturer for the first decade of the 2000s. Joma did stunning work on the squad's uniforms last year, though, and is continuing the tradition of excellence with these new 2015 2016 soccer shirt designs.
