Andrea Mantovani will fight for his place at Palermo, insists his agent.

The defender has found himself sidelined this season.

But agent Graziano Battistini told "Andrea is quiet because he is a professional and conscientious of his actions. He has found that a chain of negative events have blocked his path to playing regularly.

"These things happen in football and therefore we are aware that the only thing to do is to continue to work with professionalism and respect for his teammates and the club."
