New Palermo coach Giuseppe Sannino has enjoyed a friendly win over Hellas Verona.

Fabrizio Miccoli struck the only goal of the game.

"Of all the friendlies we've played, this gives us the most encouragement," said the former Siena boss.

"The players have shown their determination and belief in their ability, as I asked before the game. The road is long and we must work hard to find the right level, but tonight was certainly positive."
