Palermo president Zamparini: I'd trust Gattuso with my wallet

Palermo president Mauricio Zamparini has thrown his support behind AC Milan legend Rino Gattuso.

The former Rosanero coach is being investigated as part of allegations over match-fixing.

"I would put my hand in the fire for him," Zamparini told Radio 24. "I know him - I would give him my wallet because I know he is a trustworthy person.

"It seems impossible to me that Gennaro could be involved.

"I respect him as a man and I admire him.

"Italy is a second-class country. You can't do justice in Press conferences."
