The agent of Palermo midfielder Josip Ilicic says fans are heaping pressure on the Slovenian.

Ilicic has been a target for the Rosanero boo-boys.

“He’s going through a particular stage, for now he is not the player he was last season, he is not happy, he needs to find the right setting," Amir Ruznic told LiveSicilia.

“It’s just a moment, it will pass, he will return to his best. The whistles, however, he feels them and they hurt him. Even in his last performance, people were mumbling, and this certainly does not help.

“Fans pay the ticket and can do whatever they want, but the whistles, turning up your nose, they certainly do not help. For a player they are always wrong. We must trust him, it is a difficult period.

“I have spoken with Josip, he is not happy, he wants to do more, but I can assure you he is not thinking of the market or of leaving Palermo.”
