The 54-year-old Stroppa steered Monza to a historic first promotion to the top-flight via the playoffs last season but it took six matches to pick up its first point, in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at fellow promoted side, Lecce.
The club has not specified if youth team coach Palladino will remain in charge on a permanent basis or, as Italian media reports, he will serve as a caretaker coach.
Palladino’s first match in charge will be against his former team Juventus. Palladino played more than 50 matches for Juventus before leaving the club for Genoa in 2008.
