Zamparini: 'Rossi has ruined Palermo'

President Maurizio Zamparini was vicious after Palermo's 7-0 defeat. “He ruined my team and has a one per cent chance of staying on the bench.”

The patron had already been very vocal in his criticism of the Coach even before this afternoon's historic thrashing at the hands of Udinese.

“Rossi has a one per cent chance of staying on the bench, you can bet on that,” blasted Zamparini on Sky Sport Italia.

“The team has been completely destroyed. He ruined my Palermo. Rossi has destroyed this squad.

“I asked the Coach to fix the defence and he did not do it. Instead, he took off Ezequiel Munoz, who is the best player in the back line. We cannot play like this.

"I'll think it over tonight and at most tomorrow morning, but I am seriously considering handing the side to the youth team Coach. I should've kicked Rossi out at Christmas."

The 7-0 was the worst ever home defeat in Serie A and a third consecutive loss after games against Lecce and Bologna.
