Fabrizio Miccoli is eager to put uncertainty behind him and “be a protagonist with many goals” for Palermo this season.
There were strong fears the captain might have played his last game in a Rosanero jersey after advanced negotiations for a move to Dubai.
However, he seems to have made up with President Maurizio Zamparini and is happy to continue his career at the Stadio Barbera.
“On a personal level, I hope to be a protagonist this year with many goals and an important contribution to the team,” wrote Miccoli on his official website.
The ‘Pocket Striker’ scored the winning goal in a friendly against Hellas Verona  over the weekend.
“It was a good performance and a sign of all the hard work we’ve done in training over the past few weeks.
“I think fans can see the big steps forward we have made in determination and our style of football. The Coach is giving us useful pointers and the whole squad deserves a round of applause for all we’ve done this summer.”
