Nocerino grateful to Delio Rossi for Italian call-up

Antonio Nocerino spoke from the Italian national team base at Coverciano, where he expressed his appreciation for the impact Delio Rossi has had on his career while looking at the current situation at Palermo.
Nocerino was a regular fixture throughout Rossi’s spell at the Club and the midfielder came off the bench during the second half of Italy’s 1-0 triumph in Slovenia. It was his first appearance for gli Azzurri since 2007 and he told he owed this to former Coach.
“That today I am part of the national team is credit to Delio Rossi. He allowed me to grow as a footballer and a person, and for that I am always thankful.”
The ex-Juventus player then turned his attention to his Club, where Rossi has been replaced by Serse Cosmi, who has started his stint on the bench with a mixed bag of results: “The most important thing for the new Coach to put in action is to show his cleverness in working with the minds of all the players. The problem for Palermo was never and is not on a technical level, but only psychological.”
Nocerino is set to start in Italy’s friendly against Ukraine on Tuesday. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
