Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has suggested AC Milan stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano are asking for a higher wage following their recent claims to the media.
Last week, Ibrahimovic said he was growing tired of football; Cassano echoed the striker's sentiments on Tuesday when he set his retirement date.
However, Zamparini believes their comments are merely a ploy to squeeze more money out of their club before the January transfer window.
"I think they [Ibrahimovic and Cassano] want more money, they are so tired of earning a little wage," Zamparini snapped, according to Ansa.it.
"In any case, I hope the Milan players who usually make a difference have a bad game against us."
