Palermo sports chief Walter Sabatini has dismissed rivalry with Torino director Rino Foschi.

Sabatini succeeded Foschi at the Rosanero, which face Torino this weekend.

The Palermo chief said: "No, it will not be a derby. Do not personalize things. We expect a tough game, maybe one of the toughest games in the nine remaining.

"We are aware, the team knows it and will tackle this challenge with the right attention."
