Panucci leaves role at Palermo

Christian Panucci has resigned as technical director of Serie A side Palermo.

Panucci, the 39-year-old former Italy defender, only took up the role last month, but has stepped down following what the club described as a "misunderstanding" over comments made by president Maurizio Zamparini.

A club statement read: "Our technical director Christian Panucci has resigned due to a misunderstanding of statements made by president Maurizio Zamparini, which were incorrectly reported by some newspapers.

"The club accept Panucci's decision with deep regret and thank him for the work he did in a short period."
