'Life with Zamparini isn't easy'

Palermo boss Delio Rossi admits that working under Maurizio Zamparini is far from easy.

The 50-year-old tactician has often been criticised by his President despite the fact Palermo currently lie seventh in Serie A.

"I have a good relationship with President just like with all the others," Rossi said.

"This is because I am usually married to the causes of the clubs in which I have worked. I want to make their interests, my interests.

"It's not always been easy because the trouble with Presidents is that they often think that they also understand football, but generally I have always be able to manage them.

"I have a character which manages to tone down certain situations. I have broad shoulders. I've had many Presidents," he concluded.
