Colomba: Giovinco can improve

Parma boss Franco Colomba believes a move to a bigger club would benefit rising star Sebastian Giovinco.

Giovinco is part-owned by Juventus, but he finds himself at the Stadio Tardini after failing to regularly break into the set-up in Turin.

At Parma since the summer of 2010, Giovinco is maturing and he now finds himself in the Italian national squad.

Nevertheless, Colomba has suggested that the small attacker would probably improve further as a player while at an Italian giant.

"Sebastian is a very mature lad, alert and determined," the tactician noted. "He knows what he wants and his teammates respect him.

"In my opinion, his performances would become more consistent at a bigger club than they are here at Parma.

That's because he's a reference point for our opponents when we play, whereas he would be considered less of a threat in a big team."

There is talk that Juventus could take him back in 2012, even if Parma have maintained that no decision will be made until the end of the campaign.
