With staff and players going all season without being paid, it would appear they are starting to lose patience with new president Giampiero Manenti, who at the moment is all talk and no action, it is thought he will be given one more week to prove he can point Parma in the right direction, as the head of the players union Damiano Tommasi confirmed earlier today “The Parma players have decided to wait another week to see what Manenti can do to move forward”
Yesterday president Manenti insisted the game would go ahead, but with the players having no transport to the game, no wages all season, this week saw the laundry room close forcing the players to take their kits home to wash, today there were also sad images coming out of Collecchio as the last of the locker room was cleared out as bailiffs could be seen carrying the last of lockers and benches out of the training base.
Parma will meet with the Lega on the 6th March to try and sort this mess out and bring some hope to the people connected to Parma. It’s still unclear if the Ducali will be able to complete the Serie A season, failure to do so would see their opposition each week handed a 3-0 win. An announcement is expected today as to whether Genoa will be handed a 3-0 win or the game can be replayed.
