The Palermo started the championship perfectly, with an unstoppable path: 10 games played, 10 victories. Sunday at 14.30 will give the turn of the challenge against Savoia, a race that evokes so many memories in the minds of Palermo. In that league of Series C1 on the bench of the Sicilian capital team he sat Massimo Morgia, today Chieri's coach and technical manager. "I shot a lot, here I found an interesting project, aimed at enhancing the youth sector".
Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the former technician rosanero talked about his memories related to Palermo: "Wonderful years. They were very intense years that left me so many friends that I still feel". Morgia also trained the Savoy, immediately after the experience in Sicily: "Who have I been closest to? I don't think I'm wronging anyone if I tell Palermo. And not just because I spent more time there: I loved the sea, the spontaneity of the people, the warmth of the fans and I was lucky enough to work with the best president I've ever had, Giovanni Ferrara".
Palermo, Santana doubt for Pergolizzi: the Argentine is training separately. Today the exam results. The details
In rosanero, the Roman coach lost a C1 playoff semifinal against Savoy: "Yes, we lost the semifinal play-off, 1-0 both at the San Paolo and the Favorita – continued Morgia -. On returning to our home we played long in 9 and finished in 8. But I have a good memory of that championship: with a thousand difficulties, with a team built for the C-2, we were protagonists in C-1, moreover with so many Palermo. There were Perna, Lisuzzo, Vicari, Ignoffo, Compagno, Mancino …".
Two years later, as an opponent of the rosanero, a 5-1 win and a 90 ’defeat:"In the first round, we won 5-1 at home, playing the perfect game – tells Morgia –. With me there were some ex like Fortini, Puccinelli, Antonaccio. We heard the game a lot. On the other hand, Cappioli's goal came at the end. La Favorita was a pit: I was overwhelmed with boos, but there was, given my past and the rivalry of those years between the two clubs".
Morgia then focused on the championship journey of Palermo of Pergolizzi: "What value do the 10 consecutive victories have? Most High. Winning 10 in a row is never easy. In Palermo there is substance and quality. Compliments should be paid to managers, Pergolizzi, staff and players for what they are doing. Palermo team? The sense of belonging is fundamental to build a winning group".
Finally the technician ex Catanzaro, Foggia and Siena has made a prediction on the challenge of the Barbera, avoiding, however, to unbalance: "If Savoy can stop the Palermo race? I do not imbalance myself. Of course, Palermo is favored, and Savoia together with Acireale is the team with the most history and tradition in the group. – concluded Morgia -. Therefore it must be held in high regard".
