Director Faggiano leaves Parma

Parma have officially parted company with director of sport Daniele Faggiano by mutual consent. ‘I have given my all and need a new challenge.’

Faggiano was appointed in December 2016, following the club’s bankruptcy and rebirth in Serie D.

They became the first club to secure three consecutive promotions from the amateur league to top flight and consolidation their status this term with 11th place.

In a lengthy statement, it was announced this morning that Faggiano has decided to move on.

“This club, from the owners to every single employee, represents a family for me, so that is why it was not an easy decision,” wrote the director on their official website.

“After careful reflection, I believed it was only fair to myself and the people who I spent so many years working with. It’s right to say goodbye at the end of this season after a long journey together, full of obstacles, but above all great joy.

“After four very intense years, I realised that I needed a new challenge, because I feel that I’ve given my all and cannot dig out anything more within me that I feel necessary to do my work.

“The Parma owners understood my decision and showed yet again this is a family I’ll carry in my heart forever.”
