Giuseppe Sannino reveals a new-look Palermo with three at the back “so we can prepare for the debut against Napoli.”
This evening the Sicilians welcome Parma to the Stadio Barbera in a high-profile friendly, as both teams get ready for the start of the Serie A season on August 25.
“We spent a long time working on the four-man defence so now, after having assimilated those characteristics, I started testing out three at the back too,” revealed Coach Sannino.
“In our first Serie A match we will be playing against Napoli, who use a 3-5-1-1, so this friendly can help us prepare for the debut.
“In the last two years Palermo have conceded a total 125 goals and it is my duty to resolve this problem.”
