Palermo boss Rossi: Pastore better than Menez

Palermo boss Delio Rossi knows there's plenty of hype swirling around today's clash with AS Roma.

The media headlines have been dominated by President Maurizio Zamparini stating the Rosanero forwards are better than Roma's attack force.

"I always agree with my President," smiled Rossi. "In theory Roma are better than we are, but that's the great thing about football, that many times the predictions are reversed.

"Menez is 23, two years older than Pastore, and for a player that period is very important. They are both talents. Claudio Ranieri prefers Menez, but I would not exchange him for Pastore.

"If we win against Roma then it won't change anything, whether good or bad. If a team wants to reach its objective then that is a long journey that won't be transformed by a single result."
