AS Roma sports chief Walter Sabatini has laughed off how long Luis Enrique would last as Palermo coach.

Sabatini worked for fiery Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini before moving to Roma.

"How long would Luis Enrique last in Palermo? Always in context, Palermo and Roma are different situations. Of course, though, there have been a few negative results that the President would not have accepted.

"With Zamparini we must be fair, it is very difficult to defend a Coach with him - he cannot stand suffering defeats without attributing blame and therefore often argues on the basis of emotion."
