Parma duo rejected summer exit

Parma have revealed that boss Roberto Donadoni and director general Pietro Leonardi could have left the club over the summer.

“They both had offers,” Tardini President Tommaso Ghirardi told Sky Sport Italia. “However, both decided to stay and that delighted me.

“Donadoni still has a year left to run on his contract and Leonardi has only recently extended his agreement with us.

“I’m happy that both decided to remain.”

Donadoni was hired by Leonardi in January 2012 after the decision to sack Franco Colomba was taken following four draws and a 5-0 defeat at Inter.
