Palermo coach Stefano Colantuono is delighted with his squad's preseason form.

"We are working well and have responded brilliantly to the intense training programme," Colantuono told TGS Studio Sport.

"I have found a motivated group of men who are eager to work and I have also had excellent feedback from players who were initially set to change outfit.

"Our objectives for next year? We want to play at the highest level in a championship which promises to be very competitive, as there will be no point deductions and Juve will be back. Obviously, we will not snub the Cups."
