Donadoni hails Parma approach

Roberto Donadoni praised Parma’s attacking attitude against Inter, but warned “it’s needed against less prestigious sides too.”

The Ducali earned a spectacular 3-3 draw at San Siro, having twice taken the lead.

“I’ll just say that coming to San Siro, scoring three goals and creating another four good chances is not to be sniffed at,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s a shame we were a bit complacent when conceding, but overall the attitude was positive and we played to create problems for Inter and attack them.

“In all honesty, there is some disappointment, as we could’ve won tonight.”

Parma have made a name for themselves as giant-killers, having beaten Napoli at the San Paolo recently.

“We can do well against the big clubs only when we have the right approach and that must be the same approach regardless of who we are facing. The lads understand that to get a result against San Siro you need concentration, but that also has to be maintained against less prestigious sides.

“Marco Parolo’s six goals stand out, but he is often in the box because he is such a generous and hard-working player.

“Antonio Cassano is undoubtedly doing well, even though it wasn’t his best performance tonight as he only had surgery on his nose a week ago. This position is the right one for him and he can do very well there.

“It was a shame that we lost Walter Gargano almost immediately to injury, especially as he really wanted to be there and make his mark tonight. He felt a thigh twinge and in those situations it is best to stop.”
