Liverani: 'Parma deserve this'

Parma coach Fabio Liverani was optimistic after the 2-1 win over Genoa at the Marassi. ‘I have always said that this team have a lot’.

Gervinho scored two goals to give the visitors three points against a pressured Rolando Maran and his Genoa side.

“I have always said that this team have a lot, we have gone through various difficulties,” Liverani told the reports after the match.

“I have many players who can start when we have a full squad. It’s normal to have difficulties, we need to play matches like this, the lads deserve it.”

Liverani’s men bounced back from the defeat to Roma and Liverani was happy to see the ‘competitive spirit’ at the Marassi.

“There’s a big difference between us and Roma but we could have lost in a different way, we had to find this competitive spirit and wickedness.

“Today we started with Busi and Osorio, who have recently arrived and been training with us in recent weeks.”

And the Ducali coach, who replaced Roberto D’Aversa ahead of the season, said the target has been set by the club.

“The club asked me to finish between 10th and 16th in the table and we can easily do it,” Liverani added, before he spoke about Diego Maradona.

“He was my idol; it was a week full of memories. He was a poem. I remember Roma-Napoli played on New Year’s Eve.”
