Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has told coach Gian Piero Gasperini to stop whingeing.
Gasperini has been waiting for new signings this month.
"We are all very worried. I didn't think we would be left like this to find ourselves in this situation. I shall be closer than ever to the team and the Coach," said Zamparini.
"However, Gasperini has to stop complaining that the squad is inadequate and we need reinforcements. The squad is not the problem.
"In my view, this was a good team in the past and today we are working to make it even more competitive.
"Also, for too long I have heard talk of players who have to go. I ask myself with what spirit do they play knowing that they are not part of the tactician's plans?"
