Zamparini: 'Relegation not a drama'

President Maurizio Zamparini is prepared for Palermo’s potential relegation after hiring their third Coach. “If we go down, we’ll get back up.”

The patron sacked Giuseppe Sannino in September and on Monday axed Gian Piero Gasperini to bring in Alberto Malesani.

“A relegation would not be a drama,” assured Zamparini on Radio 24. “If we go down, we’ll get back up again.”

Palermo are currently bottom of the table and Zamparini’s car was attacked by angry fans in the city today.

“In life there are highs and lows, you cannot always win. People love me in Palermo, they stop me in the street and urge me to stay. You’re going to get the odd person spitting at your car, but it ends there.

“If we are relegated, just like Sampdoria, we will get straight back into Serie A. In any case, I am convinced we will secure safety.”

Malesani was meant to give his presentation Press conference on Wednesday, but it has been pushed back to Saturday.
