Palermo boss Rossi eyeing Coppa Italia glory

Palermo boss Delio Rossi believes they can win silverware this season.

Confidence is high after Palermo swept through to the Coppa Italia semi-final, where they’ll face AC Milan.

“Winning the trophy would mean putting some actual silverware in the trophy cabinet as well as qualifying for the Europa League. It is a source of great pride to note we are among Italy’s top four clubs along with Milan, Inter and Roma.”

Former Lazio boss Rossi was asked if he would ever accept a future on the bench of their rivals Roma.

“In all honesty, for some time there is a sense of belonging, but I cannot say that I would never take the job. I wouldn’t have accepted two months after leaving Lazio, just as I wouldn’t take charge of Catania soon after Palermo, but we are professionals.”
