Miccoli wants Palermo stay

Veteran forward Fabrizio Miccoli has urged club chiefs to offer him a new deal at Renzo Barbera.

The club icon has less than a year left on his current deal and was heavily linked with a move away from the club in the summer.

However, the player has expressed his desire to remain with the Rosanero after scoring a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Chievo.

“I have not received an offer from the club,” Miccoli told La Repubblica. “The president said contracts are discussed in May or June.

“If they want to discuss it then fine, otherwise I will go elsewhere. But if I was asked now I would extend my stay because that is what I want.”

The player, who is an avid Lecce fan, joined the club in a €4.3 million move from Juventus in the summer of 2007, and that soon proved to be a bargain of the century for Palermo.

Miccoli has since scored 69 goals in 142 Serie A games, while producing plenty of assists for his teammates as well.

The former Italy international has been linked with a number of Italy’s top sides during his time at Renzo Barbera, but he always remained true to the club that helped him kick-start his career.
