Donadoni committed to Parma but…

Roberto Donadoni is happy to remain with current club Parma, but he feels ready to take charge of an Italian giant.

“I’ll certainly stay here next season as I recently signed a two-year extension,” the former Italian national Coach told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“But the desire is to take charge of a big club, I’d like to be at a team who aims to get to the very top – that seems like a natural objective.

“If I am given that chance then I do believe that I have the professionalism necessary to be calm in that role.

“However, my tomorrow is Parma for now. And that is not a less challenging job. You can still collect great satisfaction from working in the provinces.”

Donadoni is a former Milan winger, but he insists his playing career will not have an impact on his coaching future.

“Joining Milan could be a target, but it is not an obsession,” he added.

“A move to Inter or Juventus? Yes, I don’t think a professional can allow the past to affect his thinking.”

Parma are tenth in the standings having collected 39 points from their 31 games so far this season.
