Donadoni challenges Parma critics

Roberto Donadoni was in bullish mood against Parma’s critics ahead of their game with Catania, another club in crisis.

The Ducali have just one point from three rounds, while the Elefantini lost every match. They face off this afternoon at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a preview.

“We lost two games not due to our performances, but naivete, so we must eliminate certain errors that do us damage,” said Donadoni in his Press conference.

“Did I get my substitutions wrong? Everything’s easy to say with the benefit of hindsight... There are players in the squad and on the bench, all of them capable of helping the team.

“We will encounter an extremely determined Catania side who are convinced they’ll be able to overturn this negative trend. The winner will be whoever wants it more.”

Jaime Valdes is in the squad despite carrying an injury, but Mory Kone did not recover in time from a right thigh problem.

Parma squad for Catania: Acquah, Amauri, Bajza, Benalouane, Biabiany, Cassani, Cassano, Felipe, Gargano, Gobbi, Lucarelli, Marchionni, Mendes, Mesbah, Mirante, Munari, Obi, Okaka, Palladino, Parolo, Pavarini, Rosi, Sansone, Valdes
