Bucchi slams Pescara protest

Pescara are without six players for the match with Parma and Coach Cristian Bucchi has criticised fans who staged a protest during training.

The Delfini are currently joint bottom of the Serie A table alongside Palermo and are in a race against time to secure survival.

A group of fans attended a midweek game between ranks and spent the entire time hurling abuse at players and particularly director of sport Daniele Delli Carri.

“It requires common sense in these situations,” said Coach Bucchi. “I’d understand if we were 15 or 16 points away from safety, but with five there is still hope.”

Pescara have already set out towards Parma for Saturday’s Serie A game, but left behind Ante Vukusic, Vladimir Weiss, Antonio Balzano, Marco Capuano, Giuseppe Rizzo and Uros Cosic.

Gianluca Caprari and Juan Fernando Quintero will join the squad directly from international duty.

Pescara squad for Parma: Pelizzoli, Perin, Falso; Zanon, Modesto, Bocchetti, Zauri, Kroldrup, Bianchi Arce; Bjarnason, Blasi, Cascione, Quintero, D'Agostino, Togni, Di Francesco; Sculli, Sforzini, Caprari, Caraglio, Celik, Abbruscato
