â€śI was surprised when I received the call,â€ť said Amelia. â€śDirector of Sport Walter Sabatini rang me on Monday morning to propose my sale.
â€śI had never asked to be sold, as my problems with the club were of a different nature and easily fixed. I am bitter, I feel like I've been dumped.â€ť
The Italian international also hinted that he would have preferred another transfer earlier in the summer to Roberto Donadoni's Napoli.
â€śI wanted to stay at Palermo. A month ago a big southern club made an offer for me, a side run by a Coach who I get on with very well.
â€śNow I am leaving in bitter circumstances. I had been trying to buy a house in Palermo too. Thankfully they sold me to an important club that will play in the Europa League, but I remain perplexed by the whole affair.â€ť
