Catania manager looking forward to Sicilian derby

“I won’t talk about the great anticipation for the derby against Palermo,” Lo Monaco told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“I would say that the expectation is normal and it will be the usual derby, where the motivations on the pitch will decisive.

“Two teams in good form will face each other, two teams who started out with different ambitions: Palermo, as admitted by its president Zamparini, is fighting for a Champions League spot, and this is also proven by the amount of money spent by the Rosanero’s club to build the squad, which oscillate around €60 million.

“On the other hand, we have built a team who wants to reach the objective of remaining in the top flight. Let’s hope, at this point, that we manage to overturn the predictions.”
