Panucci: Zamp didn't listen

Former Palermo director Christian Panucci has admitted that he would have loved to have stayed at the club.

The 39-year-old left the Rosanero in April last year after just over a month as technical director.

But the current Russia assistant Coach has claimed that the working environment at the Sicilian side is not a healthy one - as he knows only too well.

“I would have continued at Palermo with pleasure,” he told reporters. “It is an important place for me.

“Unfortunately, after 40 days I realised I could not go on.

“I tried to present a lot of things to the President, but he just didn't listen to me.”
