Kucka: 'Spark has arrived at Parma'

Parma midfielder Juraj Kucka said the win over Genoa gives the Gialloblu ‘enthusiasm’ and believes ‘the spark’ has arrived at the Gialloblu.

An important win was sealed by two Gervinho goals in the 2-1 triumph over struggling Genoa, and Kucka provided the assist for the Ivorian’s opener.

“These three points against Genoa were very needed,” he told Sky Sport Italia after the match. “They give us enthusiasm.

“We must always believe in it, like we did today.”

Kucka said the players must continue to work hard and put coach Fabio Liverani ‘in difficulty’ picking the starting line-up.

“We did well from the first minute. We are not looking for excuses, everyone must show that they want to play and put the coach in difficulty.

“Then he’ll choose. I think the spark has arrived.”

After two 2-1 wins on the bounce, including the Coppa Italia success over Cosenza, Parma continue with a home game against Benevento this weekend.

The Crociati currently sit 16th in Serie A, with nine points from their first nine games.
