Palermo president Zamparini demands crunch Mangia talks after AC Milan defeat

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini wants crunch talks with coach Devis Mangia after their defeat to AC Milan.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini wants crunch talks with coach Devis Mangia after their defeat to AC Milan.

Zamparini did not waste time blaming his tactician after last night’s 3-0 defeat at San Siro.

“We cannot play against a club like Milan in this fashion. We were two against six in midfield,” complained Zamparini.

“When you are faced with champions, the first thing you have to do is set man-marking on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Antonio Cassano.

“It reminded me of the Palermo that conceded seven goals against Udinese last season. On Tuesday I will take face to face with Mangia. I need to explain to him how you face a big side like Milan.

“Clearly the result was also influenced by the break for international duty and the fact we don’t have a super-competitive squad.”
