Parma risk five point deduction

Parma risk being deducted a further five points, and it’s still not clear if player wages have officially been paid.

The Ducali players have not received a salary all season, and today was given as the last day for payment, or a formal notice would be served on the club.

New owner Giampietro Manenti has claimed that payments have gone through, but so far there has been no official confirmation.

Gazzetta di Parma reports that if wages have not arrived in player’s bank accounts before a scheduled meeting with AIC chief Damiano Tommasi, notice will be served upon the club, placing them into administration.

In addition, despite promising to tackle a reported debt of over €100m, none of this has been tackled either, leaving Parma with the possibility of financial armageddon.

Furthermore, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, even if wages are deposited this morning, the Emilian club will be judged to have missed yesterday’s deadline and deducted three points.

A further two points are likely to be removed following a referral by the FIGC, meaning Parma will face a penalty of five points, on top of the one they were penalised earlier in the season.

That figure would leave Roberto Donadoni’s men on five points at the bottom of Serie A, making relegation a virtual certainty.
