Zamparini wants Palermo in the Champions League by 2016

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini wants to see the club playing in the Champions League within four years.

It has been 10 years since Zamparini gained control of the club and he wants to see them reach the next level.

“When I arrived I promised the fans that we would return to Serie A within three years,” he told the press.

“We are proud to have succeeded and given joy to this city. Now I hope and I promise that within four years we can reach the Champions League.”

Palermo were a club floundering around Serie B but since his stewardship began, the club have gone from strength to strength and are now mainstays in Serie A.
