Ex-Hearts striker Pinilla determined to grab Palermo chance

Mauricio Pinilla is delighted with his move to Palermo.

The former Hearts striker has promised goals to the Rosanero fans.

Pinilla said: "I wasted my talent too much in the past, but I have changed thanks to my family, who made me understand what is truly important in life.

"I feel happy and at Palermo I have the opportunity to show football's hierarchy that I belong here too.

"I am in good shape and have been training with the squad for a few weeks. It is the first real pre-season training I've had with a team in five years.

"I feel ready and do not fear the competition, as there will be room for everybody."
