Colomba shines Parma jewels

Franco Colomba credits Parma with determination and “our crown jewels” Sebastian Giovinco and Jonathan Biabiany to defeat Udinese.

“We don’t make distinctions when preparing matches, as quite simply everyone in Serie A is tough, so we face each opponent the same way,” said the Coach.

“You can tell that we take on everyone with open and attacking football, which is why we so rarely draw.”

Biabiany and Giovinco got the goals to sink Serie A leaders Udinese 2-0 at the Tardini.

“In those five minutes when Antonio Floro Flores and Antonio Di Natale tested us, there were concerns, but we managed to get the measure of them and turn the situation in our favour.

“I saw a solid squad with the right humility and desire to do well. That is what’s needed to support our diamonds, Giovinco and Biabiany. They are our crown jewels.”

Before this trip to the Tardini, Udinese had only lost one Serie A match this season.
