Parma have confirmed Coach Roberto Donadoni will extend his contract with the club next week.
“We believe in Donadoni’s work,” declared director Pietro Leonardi.
“Next week President Tommaso Ghirardi will announce his contract renewal.”
Donadoni’s current deal holds him to the Stadio Tardini until June 2013, but the one-year extension would secure his position for next season.
The former Lecco, Livorno, Genoa, Napoli, Cagliari and Italy boss has been at the helm of Parma since replacing Franco Colomba in January 2012.
