Palermo's Barzagli angry with lack of recognition

Palermo defender Andrea Barzagli is angry with the lack of recognition he's received in the media.

"After Nesta's farewell and Materazzi's injury, I heard and read every single name in the country for the San Siro clash except mine," snapped the Palermo captain.

"We even had old glories being dragged up. Yet I played with Fabio Cannavaro in the World Cup and in the match in France, nobody had any complaints then.

"When people say that after Nesta, Cannavaro and Materazzi there are no central defenders, it is putting very little faith in the young players."
