Palermo president Zamparini: Zenga safe for derby

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini insists coach Walter Zenga is not under pressure as they go into the Sicilian derby against Catania.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini insists coach Walter Zenga is not under pressure as they go into the Sicilian derby against Catania.

Zenga faces his former club on the back of a dismal result against Bologna.

But Zamparini says: "I never thought of dismissing Zenga.

"Zenga is not likely to be in doubt, even in case of defeat in the derby on Sunday. I'm not Sicilian, so do not feel particular emotions against Catania. All I need is to win 1-0, even from an own goal."
