Rossi: Miccoli withdrawal not due to injury

Palermo boss Delio Rossi said star striker Fabrizio Miccoli’s withdrawal yesterday was a tactical decision, and not due to injury.
Miccoli produced a superb 20-yard free-kick to equalize against his hometown club but failed to celebrate looking distraught as the half-time whistle was blown.
Rossi assured media that the replacement was forced, “No, the substitution was entirely down to a technical decision. At the end of the first half he seemed a little static and I decided to change him. Obviously playing in Lecce is not a game like every other for Fabrizio, but he did his part. If he wasn’t prepared for that, then I would not have fielded him.”
Palermo went on to win the game 4-2 despite trailing twice, moving the Sicilian giants into 5th place. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
