Zampa: 'Stop moaning, Gasp!'

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini admits he’s losing patience with Gian Piero Gasperini. “He must stop complaining that we need reinforcements. The squad is not the problem.”

The notoriously fiery patron had publicly backed his Coach on Monday, but expressed frustration today to La Repubblica.

“We are all very worried. I didn’t think we would be left like this to find ourselves in this situation. I shall be closer than ever to the team and the Coach,” said Zamparini.

“However, Gasperini has to stop complaining that the squad is inadequate and we need reinforcements. The squad is not the problem.

“In my view, this was a good team in the past and today we are working to make it even more competitive.

“Also, for too long I have heard talk of players who have to go. I ask myself with what spirit do they play knowing that they are not part of the tactician’s plans?”
