Bamba: 'I wanted Palermo'

Ivory Coast international Souleymane Bamba reveals he rejected England and Germany for Palermo.

The defender was a free agent after his spell at Trabzonspor and put pen to paper on Tuesday.

“I had offers from Germany and England, but I wanted this adventure in Serie A,” said Bamba at his presentation.

“Palermo are a great club.”

He is not the only Ivorian in the League, as Gervinho has made a real impact at Roma.

“Gervinho is a friend of mine. He said he’ll try to score many goals past me, but I want to stop him!”
