Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini reveals plans to build a new stadium. “I am not jealous of Juventus.”

Last night the Bianconeri inaugurated their stadium in Turin, which is the first to be owned by a club in Serie A rather than be rented from the local council.

“I am not jealous of Juventus for the fact they inaugurated their own stadium,” said Zamparini.

“At the end of the month we will present our project for a stadium in Palermo and you'll see there will be some new elements.”

The President has been pushing to build a new venue both at Palermo and his previous club, Venezia, but always ran up against red tape problems.

“We hope that the Juventus Arena in Turin can become just one of many stadiums owned by clubs in Italy.

“I firmly believe Palermo will become part of that group.”
