It is being reported that Parma have still not secured the UEFA license required for them to play in next season’s Europa League.
The Gialloblu have secured a sixth place Serie A finish and continental qualification but their participation in the tournament is now in doubt.
The news comes after Roberto Donadoni’s side were not mentioned on a list released by the FIGC to announce which Italian teams have been granted a license to play in Europe for 2014/15.
Should Parma miss out, the team to benefit would be Torino, who finished seventh but have been named on the list.
The Granata thought they had lost their chance after Alessio Cerci saw an injury time penalty saved that would have seen them beat Fiorentina and with it, secure sixth for themselves. As it is, they may now get an unexpected lifeline.
FIGC list of Italian teams to have secured a Euro license by UEFA: Atalanta, Fiorentina, Inter, Juventus, Lazio, Milan, Napoli, Roma, Sampdoria, Torino, Udinese, Verona.
