Siena Coach Giuseppe Sannino has now confirmed he wants a move to Sicily. “I owe a great deal to Massimo Mezzaroma, but I have chosen Palermo.”
It was already well known that the Rosanero had picked him for next season, but the tactician had so far not broken his silence on the matter.
“We’ll see what the future holds for me,” said Sannino on Radio Manà Manà.
“I owe a great deal to President Mezzaroma, but at the end of the season we talked it over and decided if the option arose that we could take different paths.
“I think this can be considered a moment of stand-by, as the President is thinking about it, but I hope soon he can give me the opportunity to work in a new adventure.
“We’ll see how it goes. There has been some contact with other clubs, but I’d like to point out Lazio are not among them.
“Without doubt, Palermo are the real alternative to Siena for me. I am waiting for a meeting between my current President and Maurizio Zamparini to understand the evolution of the whole affair.
“I hope for the sake of everyone that we can break off without any problems. I think at the end of the day President Mezzaroma will understand, as there are many situations to take into consideration. All of it goes into my desire to change.
“Many important Coaches have worked at Palermo and it can be a great chance for me to grow professionally. I hope to have this
The two clubs have already agreed for Siena director of sport Giorgio Perinetti to join Palermo this summer.
