Palermo coach Delio Rossi was pleased with the Rosanero's 2-1 win against Juventus, but believes his team are starting to feel the effects of a busy fixture list.

"In one month, we have played eight matches and they have all been decisive clashes," Rossi began to say to Tuttomercatoweb after the match.

"We are a little tired, but maybe it wasn't a high-quality match as that in Milan [against Inter], but there was a lot of heart and determination."

Rossi went on to admit that Cesare Bovo did commit a handball in the penalty area midway through the first-half, and a spot-kick should have been awarded.

"It was a penalty," he stated. "The attacking move was created by a free-kick that didn't exist, and from the next corner kick, they scored.

"When Juventus complain, they want to be taken seriously. When Palermo do it, they are told off," concluded Rossi.
