Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini has sacked 21 coaches since 2002, but he insists that he will be sticking with struggling boss Beppe Iachini, as long as he does what he's told.
Newly promoted Palermo have had a rough start to the season and have just lost 3-0 to Empoli and 4-0 to Lazio, which would usually spell doom for a boss under Zamparini.
But while the fiery president has demanded the team enter a tactical training camp this week, Iachini remains in charge.
Zamparini has reportedly told Iachini that he must play more of his new signings, even though the coach has indicated in the past that the younger players aren't ready yet.
It is also believed that Zamparini has demanded a change in formation, stating that the current team is unbalanced.
Palermo's next test after the international break is a home encounter with fellow promoted side Cesena and Iachini knows he absolutely must deliver.
While Alan Pardew may feel that his position at Newcastle is tough, Iachini must be in one of football's most precarious positions.
