Livorno are currently at the bottom of the Serie A table.
“In Serie A, there are no easy matches,” the 35-year-old said to Stadionews.it. “For both teams, this will be a tough game.
“We are in need of points, and we will try to win, even if we know that Palermo are a strong squad, and have demonstrated this against Juventus.
“[Palermo coach Walter] Zenga has given his side an identity, and their style of play should have earnt them more points than they currently have.
“Palermo have excellent players, and can feature in this season’s championship.”
