Ivory Coast international Souleymane Bamba reveals he rejected England and Germany for Palermo.
The defender was a free agent after his spell at Trabzonspor and put pen to paper on Tuesday.
“I had offers from Germany and England, but I wanted this adventure in Serie A,” said Bamba at his presentation.
“Palermo are a great club.”
He is not the only Ivorian in the League, as Gervinho has made a real impact at Roma.
“Gervinho is a friend of mine. He said he’ll try to score many goals past me, but I want to stop him!”
