‘Ferrero will crumble Sampdoria’

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini riles against the 'traitor' Massimo Ferrero, and warns he will 'crumble Sampdoria'.

The Presidents of the two clubs have been involved in an increasing dispute over the Blucechiati’s rumoured interest in Rosanero captain Edgar Barreto, whose contract expires this summer.

Ferrero accused his counterpart of making 'death threats', but Zamparini returned with a bitter tirade of his own.

Ferrero: 'Zamparini death threats'

Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero claims Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini “made death threats” over Edgar Barreto.

Barreto is the Rosanero captain and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, but so far he has refused to sign an extension and has therefore been linked to Samp.

“Zamparini insulted me, made death threats and now he is frankly going over the line,” Ferrero told Sky Sport Italia.

‘Lotito like Mussolini’

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has compared Claudio Lotito to fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

The Lazio President is at the centre of a row after being recorded saying he hopes Carpi and Frosinone don’t win promotion to Serie A, as it would affect television rights.

Lotito also intimated that he has more power than the heads of the Lega Serie A and Serie B, and the Rosanero patron thinks he has an inflated sense of self.
