Parma were busy right from the word go in the transfer market this summer, at the start of July the club announced the double signing of defender Mohammed Coly and midfielder Manuel Scavone both from Pro Vercelli.
Scavone joins Luigi Apolloni’s side to provide some reinforcement to the Parma midfield. At 6’0” the lanky player began his career back in 2004 with home town club South Tyrol, spending six years there, Scavone racked up over 120 appearances scoring 19 times.
Between 2010 and 2012 Scavone spend time with Novara then a brief spell at Bari in Serie B before signing a deal with Pro Vercelli for the beginning of the 2012/13 campaign.
Playing on the left of the Pro Vercelli midfield, Scavone was a key member of Moreno Longo’s side in Serie B last term despite the clubs relegation, Scavone made 36 appearances scoring five times and chipping in with 11 assists.
The midfielder’s experience of playing at a higher level could prove vital for the less experienced players in the Parma locker room as l’gialloblu make the step up from Serie D to Lega Pro.
Scavone will be hoping to impress new coach Luigi Apolloni and cement his place in the Parma starting 11 this term as The Ducali continue on their road back to the top.
