Zamparini intends to stay on with Palermo

Departing Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini says he'll remain involved.

Zamparini stepped-down as president this week, as he's selling the club to an Anglo-American fund.

“I've always said I want to leave Palermo in good hands, and I think I will be," Zamparini assured on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“Emotions are part of life. This football has caused me a lot of stress and I'm no longer 20.

“It's true that passion has no age, but I'm very happy because I thought I'd feel a bit uncomfortable, but instead I have no regrets.

“I'll stay on the Rosanero board, I'll be a consultant because the new ownership don't know a damn thing."
