Sampdoria president Riccardo Garrone has rapped his captain Angelo Palombo.

Palombo feels Samp need to buy in January if they're to dump Antonio Cassano.

Garrone said: "The constitution allows you to freely express opinions, but Palombo should have also stayed quiet. He has spoken with his heart, but when you speak with your heart, reason is often put to one side.

"It's not up to him to say such things."
