Parma general manager Pietro Leonardi is confident Coach Roberto Donadoni will stick with the project.
“Knowing our Coach so well and the chances he has to express himself here, the organisation of the club and the calm atmosphere, I don’t think he could find any better,” Leonardi told TV Parma.
“He has already shown how much he enjoys coming to the Collecchio training ground and helping all of Parma to improve.
“He is truly giving us a few extra points in the table with his advice on structure and sense of belonging.”
The Ducali are currently in joint fifth place with Inter and on track to qualify for the Europa League.
