Zamparini: 'No alibis in Milan'

President Maurizio Zamparini demands Palermo “have no alibis” when taking on Milan at San Siro this evening.

“It won't be an easy game, that is certain,” commented the patron. “However, I expect consistency and confirmation of recent good results from my team.

“It's true Federico Balzaretti is suspended and Fabrizio Miccoli in doubt, so there are difficulties, but I don't want them to become alibis. We can do well anyway.”

Palermo are unusually ahead of the reigning Serie A Champions in the table and have beaten Milan in three of their last four top flight encounters.

“The Rossoneri are a top team and will want to make up for recent performances. We lost 3-1 here last season, so I wouldn't say we are their bête noir,” added Zamparini.
