Kyle Lafferty sold by Palermo for being 'out-of-control womaniser' | inside World Soccer

Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty is being sold by Palermo over claims he is an "out-of-control womaniser" by club's President Maurizio Zamparini.

While the 26-year-old former Glasgow Rangers was an important part in Palermo's promotion from Serie B last season, the Sicilian side just can't cope with his off-field antics.

"Lafferty is sold as a result of a precise request from my coach Beppe Iachini," Zamparini told Radio 24.

"He is an out-of-control womaniser, an Irishman without rules. He is someone who disappears for a week and goes on the hunt for women in Milan.

"He has two families with six children, he never trains, he's completely off the rails. On the field he's a great player, because he gave us everything he had and more.

"In terms of his behaviour, however, he is uncontrollable. My coach told me he cannot sort this player out, so he has to go."
