Hernan Crespo is the new Coach of the Parma Primavera youth team, a training ground for the top job.
Recently-retired Valdanito was appointed tactician for the Primavera this morning and will be presented to the Press on Wednesday.
Crespo was voted ‘Parma Player of the Century’ as part of recent celebrations of the club’s 100 years.
Pippo Inzaghi was given the Primavera job at Milan last year and is now the main Coach, so Crespo could be working his way towards the main Tardini bench.
