Palermo, the Argentinian international, has failed to adapt to the rigours of La Liga and recently boss Victor Munoz was moved to defend his mis-firing striker.
However, his sending off led to boos ringing around El Madrigal, something that hurt Palermo.
Palermo said: "I know that in the end I will overcome the situation, because it is not the first time they have insulted me.
"Something similar happened in Boca when I arrived there and in other teams I have played in, but I don't worry about it.
"If the fans don't like me they are entitled to give their opinion, but they will have to accept I will fight to change their opinion.
"Villarreal is not just Palermo. There are ten players that need the encouragement of the fans. I understand that there are people that do not like me, but it has happened before and I was able to change it, I will work towards the same thing here."
