Palermo coach Giuseppe Sannino was satisfied with their Coppa Italia victory over Cremonese.
The Sicilians won 3-1 in the Coppa's third round.
"It was a game where we saw the rigours of pre-season training, but we also did well. This was the embryo of what Palermo can become," said the Coach.
"I like to see a certain logic in what we do and that proved to be the case here. Even if we were off the pace in the second half, I still saw a lot of effort.
"We owe so much to our fans, as we represent a whole city and it's only right for the people to see their players sweating buckets."
