Guidolin was full of praise for his players but his comments regarding the club were not taken lightly in the board room and now the club has reacted angrily and they have hinted that Guidolin may already be shown the door.
The coach had said, “It’s like playing in hell here,” after the game and Palermo are furious with his words.
A statement on the club’s website reads: “U.S. Citta di Palermo would like to de-associate itself with the comments of the coach which described the climate here as ‘Infernal’,”
“The club condemns the gravity of the comments and it’s not fair on the fans who are involved with this club.
“The comments aimed at the club will no doubt damage the image of the Palermo fans. The club will work hard to protect its image and it’s honourable status."
"At the end of the game the club confirmed its trust in Guidolin however in light of the gravity of the comments, the club reserves every right to amend decisions regarding its coaching staff.”
It seems as if Guidolin is in hot water and he may be out of a job sooner rather than later given the club’s anger with the coach. Guidolin has always had a turbulent relationship with president Maurizio Zamparini and this could be the final straw in the problems between the two.
