Kurtic proud of Palermo goal

Palermo's young midfielder Jasmin Kurtic is proud to have shown what he is worth to the club.

The 22-year-old Slovene scored his first goal for the Sicilian side since his arrival from Gorica in January.

Unfortunately, Palermo conceded two late goals at home to Cesena and had to settle for a draw.

"I am proud of my performance even if obviously there is a lot of regret because I would have preferred it if my goal had brought home a win," Kurtic said.

"Unfortunately it didn't go that way. But the positive fact remains that I was able erase my terrible debut in the League.

"In the game against Fiorentina I can say that Kurtic wasn't seen on the pitch. I was totally absent and those who were disappointed with my performance were right."
