Unione Sportiva Cittá di Palermo. The Rosanero, the Aquile. The Sicilians. They of pink shirts, trigger-happy ownership and midtable solidity.
This should be a good week. Palermo have a lot of interesting facets (I could easily spend the whole week writing about Maurizio Zamparini alone) and a successful history. They’ve spent a lot of time outside the top tier but also a lot of very credible Serie A finishes over the past few seasons. Plenty of good players call Palermo “home,” they’ve played in Europe and their manager’s story is as compelling as any in football.
Like last week I’ll endeavour to post something new every day. There’s plenty to write about, and I’m particularly excited at the prospect of uncovering more instances of Zamparini’s madness. Check back tomorrow for a context-setting look at the Rosanero’s history.
