Palermo have reappointed Francesco Guidolin as their coach, the Sicilian club announced on Tuesday. Under Guidolin, Palermo won promotion to Serie A in May 2004 then finished sixth in the 2004-05 season -- their first in Italy's top flight for 32 years.

Guidolin, who spent last year coaching French side Monaco, replaces Giuseppe Papadopulo. Palermo finished eighth last season to earn a place in the Intertoto Cup.

"I restart the journey that was interrupted a year ago with renewed enthusiasm," the 50-year-old Italian was quoted as saying in Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday.

"I'm delighted to return to Palermo's bench, but I don't want to add anything else until I've discussed my plans with the club."

Guidolin has also had coaching spells at Vicenza, Atalanta and Udinese in Serie A.
