Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini was full of praise for coach Stefano Colantuono, despite Sunday's return being marked with defeat to Napoli.

He said: "I made compliments to Colantuono at the end of the match with Napoli. Finally, we were competitive. We just had a lot of bad luck, all the decisions went against us. The fans are close to the team, it's the time to support and help us."
