Palermo to appeal relegation

Palermo have announced that they will appeal their relegation to Serie C as it is confirmed their players will hold a Press conference on Wednesday.

Palermo will not contest the promotion playoffs in Serie B as it stands after they were demoted to the third tier for financial irregularities.

However, President Alessandro Albanese – who has only been in the position for four days – made it clear the Rosanero would fight back.

“We’re already preparing the appeal,” Albanese told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It takes at least a day to read the whole sentence and then prepare the appeal. We didn’t expect it, but I reiterate my confidence and our serenity.

“We feel in the right even more than we did before.”

In the meantime, Palermo’s first team will appear in front of the media at 08:45 BST tomorrow to give their take on the controversy.
