Zamp: ‘Palermo won’t go bankrupt’

Maurizio Zamparini assures Palermo won’t go bankrupt - “everyone can think what they want, but I’ve never stolen a Euro”.

Bankruptcy proceedings have been opened against the Sicilian club, with allegations that there’s a €70m hole in their accounts.

The website Il Sole 24 Ore reported last month that the problem arose from repeatedly selling the Palermo brand, creating a financial benefit of €68.9m.

‘Dybala has lost his enthusiasm’

Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini claims Juventus forward Paulo Dybala “still doesn’t know that happiness doesn’t lie in money” and has lost his enthusiasm.

Dybala started the season with 10 goals in his first six Serie A appearances, but the forward has scored just twice in the following 10 games and failed to score in any of Juve’s Champions League group matches.

“He’s going through a rough patch, but it’s no cause for concern,” Zamparini, who brought the 24-year-old to Europe, told Corriere dello Sport.

Report: Sassuolo sack Bucchi

There are reports Sassuolo have fired Coach Cristian Bucchi and brought in former Udinese and Palermo boss Beppe Iachini.

According to multiple sources, a meeting was set up with Iachini today to agree personal terms for a contract to June 2019 and an announcement is imminent.

Iachini is most famous for his baseball cap, which he wears to protect his eyes from the light due to an ocular condition, and had several spells on the Palermo bench.
