Zamp: Iachini marriage will last

Maurizio Zamparini has promised ‘five quality signings’ for Palermo this summer and that his ‘marriage’ with Coach Beppe Iachini will last.

The Rosanero are preparing for a second run at Serie A with their outspoken President following a successful promotion back at the first time of asking.

It is the second time the club have moved up to the top flight under their owner and has come a decade on from the first time.

“In 2004 there was the desire to present a gift to this city, but this year it was a duty to return to Serie A,” Zamparini has considered to Sky Sport Italia this week.

“That’s the difference between this promotion and the first one.

“The Palermo Iachini and I have in mind is this - a Palermo of running, quality and substance. With Iachini I have said that we will make five quality signings and that will be enough.

“For me, this Palermo is strong than that of 10 years ago with Guidolin.

“Iachini? I have rediscovered him after years and we have married immediately, but this time it will last.”
