Palermo president Zamparini: We tried for Recoba

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini insists he tried to sign Alvaro Recoba before the former Inter Milan attacker joined Torino.

Ahead of yesterday's 1-1 draw, Zamparini said: "I am happy that Il Chino has been reunited with Walter Novellino, even though he was very close to coming to Sicily."

Recoba managed to grab Torino's goal in the draw.
