"I am truly sorry for the people of Palermo, as they must find the strength to begin again with all we've experienced in 10 years," said Zamparini.
"We will build a stronger Palermo. When you win, you're treated like a hero, while a defeat turns you into a loser.
"This is a cursed year. I am disappointed, but in football you win and you lose. Tomorrow I'll meet with director Giorgio Perinetti and Sannino. The team is 90 per cent ready for Serie B and we won't dismantle it.
