After two seasons away in Portugal, Fabrizio Miccoli admits he's excited about the prospect of again playing in Serie A with Palermo.

"I am very emotional," he enthused. "To come back and play in the Italian championship is my dream and to do it with a great side like Palermo against Roma is amazing. I can't wait to get out there.

"It will be tough because they are one of the strongest sides in Italy and they play the best football.

"We will need to play the so-called perfect game if we are going to get a result and we will need the support of the Palermo public."
