Rosario Pergolizzi (born October 7, 1968 in Palermomarker) is an Italianmarker football manager and former player.



Pergolizzi, a defender, made his professional debut with Sardinian team Olbia Calcio; he then moved to Napoli, where he made a single appearance in the Serie A 1987-88. Pergolizzi then played for several minor Serie A and B clubs, including Ascoli, Bologna, Brescia, Padova and Ravenna. He retired in 2001-2002, after a single appearance with Olbia, then in Serie D.


Pergolizzi started his coaching career in 2002 as Giuseppe Pillon's assistant coach at Ascoli of Serie C1. The same year the club immediately gained promotion to Serie B. In 2003-2004 he followed Pillon at Bari.

From 2004 to 2005 he coached Serie C2 club Olbia, the same team in which he started and ended his playing career. In 2005 he was appointed to coach Palermo's youth squad. In his first season, he reached the semifinals of both the Campionato Nazionale Primavera and the Coppa Italia Primavera. In 2006-2007, he reached again the Coppa Italia Primavera semifinals, where his team was defeated by Juventus.

On April 23, 2007, following the firing of head coach Francesco Guidolin, Pergolizzi was appointed alongside first team assistant manager Renzo Gobbo to coach Palermo for the five remaining Serie A league matches. He served for only three matches before being sacked himself and replaced by his predecessor Guidolin.

After a year without a job, in the summer of 2008 Pergolizzi took back his previous role as Palermo youth team coach. In his first season back with the Palermo youngsters, he guided the under-19 team to win the Campionato Primavera for a historical first time, after defeating tipped favourites Juventus in the quarter finals, Chievo in the semi-final, and Siena in the league final.
