Parma President Tommaso Ghirardi claims that on-loan striker Amauri is a luxury for the club.
The Italy international of Brazilian descent has resurrected his career at the Ennio Tardini following his move from Juventus in the January transfer window.
Interviewed on Domenica Sportiva, Ghirardi said: "Amauri is a luxury for us. I am almost astounded that he is playing for Parma… He has great qualities.
"He has been reborn with us. He has scored three goals and made others. Amauri was out for a game and a half and we felt it."
