Pietro Leonardi has reacted to Parma's defeat at Fiorentina by describing the club as in a 'code red' situation.
The sporting director was talking after the Gialloblu's second successive away defeat by a three-goal margin, and expressed his concern that despite absences in the team, the players are lacking the correct competitive attitude.
"The situation is complicated, we know we must improve. In Florence we had the chance, but right after the break we have conceded a goal after 40 seconds and we dropped.
"It is true that we have many absences, but it is a code red situation because the League is more than complicated.
"At this point, the whole club, from players to Coach, must realise that we must be more exact because the road is hard.
"We probably have our limits, but the team bust be certain that they are giving their most to get out of this situation."
