Andrea Raggi joins Palermo
Andrea Raggi has completed his move from Empoli to Palermo. The defender has been brought in to replace Andrea Barzagli, who today completed a move from Palermo to German side Wolfsburg.
âIt is a great feeling,â he told Calcio Parlato. âI am very excited to come to Palermo, which is a great place in every sense.
âI knew for a long time that the Sicilians were watching me and they came to an agreement with Empoli a few days ago, leaving me to settle terms today. It will be a four-year contract.
âTo be the successor to Barzagli and Zaccardo will be a great motivation to me because they are top-class defenders.
âIt will be tough, but I am here to do well and change this teamâs fortunes.
âI donât know any of Palermoâs staff personally, not even Coach Stefano Colantuono, but I have followed his career from Atalanta to Palermo and I look forward to working with him.â
