Torino's suspended striker Davide Di Michele has explained why he left Palermo over the summer.

Torino face Palermo this weekend and Di Michele told Tuttosport: "I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to go to the game in Palermo, but I do want to be there.

"I left a lot of friends there and I had a great year and a half in Sicily.

"I don't want any revenge and I want to make it clear that I didn't ask to leave Palermo, but I'm happy with Torino so there are no hard feelings.

"I'm happy with the trust that President Urbano Cairo has shown me and I'm looking forward to a bright future."
