Palermo has stated that he had thought of using Villarreal as a launching pad for his European career and Floro stated his belief that the Argentinian striker had the talent to go on to achieve big things.
Floro said: "This club made a strong bet when they bought him (Palermo) and I consider that I can get more out of him.
"In his case it is necessary to be very clear.
"He is the top forward in Villarreal, which is the reason why my obligation as a coach is to trust and to rely on him.
"But it is necessary to to try and get more out of him."
Floro will make his return to La Liga over the weekend after a five year hiatus and he added: "We must go and concentrate our efforts on obtaining a good result, and we are hoping that Palermo contributes.
"He has shown good form since he arrived, when we did not know as much about him as other high-profile players and he has given us what we were looking for in attack."
Speaking about what he has looked for since arriving, Floro said: "It's been good and I have tried to make some basic concepts clear on which we will work upon all year.
"Nothing has changed (in my methods of work). I have had much desire to coach again in Spain because I am enthusiastic about my football and demand that my players are the same."
