"I'm so happy, I can't wait to start," Sannino told reporters on Monday after Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini announced the 55-year-old would replace Bortolo Mutti.

No contract has yet been signed by Zamparini and his new coach-elect.

Palermo, who have a sizeable fanbase, flirted with relegation last season.

Siena finished 16th but have less resources than the Tuscan club.
