Zamparini happy to see Cavani score

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini says he is happy to see former player Edinson Cavani score on a prolific basis for Napoli.

Cavani left Palermo last summer after three and a half years in Sicily.

He has scored 25 goals in Serie A for Napoli this season and looks set to challenge Antonio Di Natale to be Capocannoniere.

"Every time that I see him score for Napoli I am happy," Zamparini told Radio Kiss Kiss. "If Napoli managed to keep Maradona in the past I believe that they won't have any problems keeping Cavani."

Turning his attention to tonight's Coppa Italia semi-final against Milan, he said: "The Coppa is a very important objective in a season that has been so-so.

"We certainly won't start out as favourites, but I hope for the best."
