Palermo Want to Lose
After their loss in Series A this weekend Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini said he hoped his side loses against West Ham on Thursday,
"I hope West Ham kick us out of the UEFA Cup, otherwise I am sure we will lose again on Sunday against Chievo. This team cannot compete in two different tournaments and I honestly couldn't care less about the UEFA Cup – I prefer the Serie A championship."
The Scilian team lost by two goals against Empoli and have looked very weak defensively. West Ham on the otherhand have not scored in two games and managed only three shots on target in those two games.
