Parma investors saw 'irregularities'

Energy T.I. Group, who own 10 per cent of Parma, claim there were “serious irregularities” and confusion over debts.

The players today decided to wait a few more days before putting the club into administration, even though outstanding wages stretching back to July 2014 have still not been paid.

However, Energy T.I. Group are not prepared to wait and confirmed they are trying to get Parma put into administration.

“They repeatedly called board meetings with resignations and the nomination of new directors without taking us into account,” President Roberto Giuli told TV Parma.

He revealed suspicious figures around the period between Tommaso Ghirardi’s Presidency of the club, the brief Rezart Taci era and new patron Giampietro Manenti.

“I don’t know Manenti. With Ghirardi we abstained from approving the balance sheet in December.

“When we came into the club, there were €50m of debts. We cannot understand how today that figure can be €97m.”

The situation is deteriorating quickly at Parma, as this morning Equitalia – who gather taxes and contributions for the Italian Government – seized assets at the club’s training ground, including several vehicles.

“Those issues were so far gone that it wasn’t even worth the bother trying to stop them,” explained President Manenti.

“We have more pressing matters to deal with. It’ll be easier to just buy new vehicles tomorrow.”
