Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has hit back at Lazio counterpart Claudio Lotito.

Lotito questioned Zamparini's treatment of his coaches this week.

"I want to do everything in life, except take lessons from Lotito. That I can be sure of. How would I define him? Amusing," replied Zamparini.

"At the moment I am the most desperate man in Italy and these situations force you to make desperate choices."
