Zamparini slates Palermo, Rossi
Palermo go into the Christmas break with club president Maurizio Zamparini's criticism ringing in their ears.
Sunday's 1-1 draw against ten-man Bari, who sit bottom of Serie A, dropped I Rosanero to sixth in the standings.
Bari played a man down for an hour after Marco Rossi was sent off but still managed to grab an equaliser through Andrea Masiello, after Josip Ilicic had given Palermo a first-half lead.
"I saw a horrible game by my team and a terrible approach by my coach [Delio Rossi]," said Zamparini to Mediaset. "I am disappointed and bitter.
"I did not like the team's display, and it's incredible that we were unable to defend the lead when we were playing with numerical superiority.
"This is not the way to go, we cannot think we can aim for great things this season if we play like this."
The result was Palermo's third draw in Serie A. The Sicilian side have collected 27 points from their 17 games so far this season.
