Iachini: Matri's a great striker

Palermo boss Giuseppe Iachini has admitted that he would love to have Alessandro Matri for next season.

The Sicilian side won promotion to Serie A last term after winning Serie B. And the Coach has revealed that they are already thinking about their return to the top-flight.

“This was a big promotion for us,” the tactician told Sky Sport Italia. “It was important we got up, but this group can still grow.

“Next season we want to reach safety as soon as possible and then see where we can go.

“We have a competitive squad, but there’s always room for a few quality players. Matri is a great striker and we’d love to have him here.

“However, there are quite a few teams who would say the same thing.”
