WHAT A STEAL

Soccer 360 - - Serie A -

Serie B side Palermo has been sold for €10 (yes, you read that cor­rectly) to a Lon­don­based com­pany, as con­firmed by out­go­ing owner Mau­r­izio Zam­par­ini. The 77-year-old owned the club since 2002 and dur­ing that time he ap­pointed more than 40 man­agers. Zam­par­ini stepped down as club pres­i­dent last year fol­low­ing a failed takeover bid, but has man­aged to sell the club now for a “sym­bolic price” to Global Fu­tures Sports. The new own­ers will work to­wards set­tling the club’s out­stand­ing debt of €22.8 mil­lion and will also put in plans to build a new sta­dium and train­ing centre.
