Parma adopt ‘lucky’ dog

Serie A side Parma have adopted a stray dog after it brought them victory at Lecce on Sunday afternoon.

The dog, named Acaya, befriended the squad while they were preparing for their game at the Via Del Mare this weekend.

Following the 2-1 victory, the club have confirmed that the animal has been taken to their training base at Collecchio, where the dog will now be cared for.

“The dog brought us a lot of luck and has remained by our side in this period,” Parma sporting director Pietro Leonardi noted.

“We’ve taken her to our hearts and decided to bring her back to Collecchio in order to provide a stable home.”
