Nocerino praises former club Palermo

Milan’s Antonio Nocerino will come up against his past this weekend when the Rossoneri travel to Palermo.

The midfielder left the Stadio Barbera in the summer for just €500,000 given that he had a year left on his Palermo deal.

“I’m happy to be at a club like Milan, playing for the Rossoneri would be a dream for everyone, but if I am here then it is because of Palermo,” he told Milan News.

“Palermo gave me the opportunity to grow and I will always be grateful to the Rosanero and their fans who were always close to me.”

The 26-year-old has been a revelation at San Siro after scoring eight goals in 23 League games. He’d only netted six top-flight goals in his entire career during spells at Juventus and Palermo before 2011-12.

Meanwhile, there are whispers emerging from Sicily which are suggesting that Palermo may line up with a 3-5-2 system at the weekend.
