Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini launched an incredible attack on referee Renzo Candussio. “He wanted revenge because I sacked his father.”
The patron spoke to La Repubblica after today’s 1-0 Serie B defeat to Carpi, in which the Sicilians had two players sent off.
“The referee did absolutely everything,” said Zamparini. “The incredible thing is that he lives in Sevegliano, where I am from. I thought his refereeing might have been an attempt to prove he wasn’t favouring my club.
“Instead I phoned the Mayor of Sevegliano, who reminded me that five years ago I fired Candussio’s father from my business group.
“He certainly wanted revenge.”
