Miccoli wants new Palermo contract

Palermo captain Fabrizio Miccoli has vented his frustration at not yet being offered a contract extension by the club.

“I have another year left on my agreement and then we’ll see,” the 33-year-old told Sky Sport Italia on Friday.

“There are a lot of things that I want to do, but I can’t. I want to end my career here and the President wants that, but when are we going to talk about it?

“I don’t know if I should have been treated differently. My situation is different to Federico Balzaretti’s, he had a great Euro 2012, he is two years younger than me and I want to see if his contract is allowed to run down.

“I would have expected the same treatment that Antonio Di Natale had from Udinese when they offered him a new deal.”

The forward moved to Sicily in 2007 and he admits that he could have switched to Dubai at the start of this summer.

“I’ve had a variety of offers and have always rejected them,” the former Juventus and Fiorentina attacker added.

“I was very close to Al-Nasr a short while ago. There was an agreement, all that was missing were the signatures and I spoke on a daily basis with boss Walter Zenga. Then the President stopped everything.”
