ROME - Palermo coach Delio Rossi has a one
percent chance of keeping his job after "destroying the team" in
the 7-0 home thrashing by Udinese on Sunday, colourful club
president Maurizio Zamparini said.
The Sicilian side, pushing for a European place earlier in
the season, have slid down the Serie A table in recent weeks and
were 5-0 down at half-time against a rampant Udinese with Alexis
Sanchez scoring four goals and Antonio Di Natale three.
"Rossi has a one percent chance of staying. He has ruined my
Palermo," Zamparini, who has made several idle threats to sell
the club, told reporters.
"Rossi has destroyed this team. I told the coach to sort out
the defence and he didn't. Rossi dropped Ezequiel Munoz and he
is the best in defence. You can't play like that."
Rossi refused to resign but knows his fate is all but
"I'm not quitting. I'm a fighter," Rossi said. "There was a
risk I'd be sacked before, nevermind now."
