Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has sensationally revealed AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani rejected - and mocked - the opportunity of signing Luca Toni three years ago.

"When I offered Toni to Milan, if I remember rightly three years ago, Galliani replied he would be embarrassed to walk up the San Siro steps with Toni wearing a Rossoneri jersey," revealed Zamparini in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I imagine he won't regret that statement, seeing as he says he never regrets anything."
