Ilicic reveals his ambition

Palermo starlet Josip Ilicic has revealed his ambition to do well for the club in all competitions.

The 23-year-old Slovenia international has been a revelation in his first season in Serie A.

"I have a four-year contract and I am happy at Palermo," he said.

"I don't know if there are other teams following me and I am not even planning to discuss my contract again.

"I am not thinking about it because my job is on the pitch and in training.

"The contract is up to my agent and Maurizio Zamparini."

Asked to reveal whether he would prefer to qualify for Europe or win the Coppa Italia, Ilicic replied: "Both. We aren't making a choice.

"Both objectives are important and possible given the way we are playing right now. We are interested in getting into Europe as it would mean that we are on of the best teams in Serie A.
