Udinese: 'Parma game off'

Parma’s crisis plunges the Serie A schedule into chaos, as Udinese confirm that Sunday’s game at Tardini is off.

The Ducali are in chaos as the new ownership led by Giampietro Manenti are attempting to stave off bankruptcy, but have not met deadlines for payments yet.

Coach Roberto Donadoni cancelled today's training session, and now Udinese sporting director Cristiano Giaretta confirms that the game is cancelled.

“We were supposed to depart for Parma, but the game was cancelled,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.

“We were informed by Parma together with the Lega Calcio that the game would not be played on Sunday.

“We're expecting further details and communication, but for the moment this is the situation.”

Calciomercato.com states that Mayor Federico Pizzarotti refused to allow the game to go ahead over safety fears, after Parma were unable to pay for stewarding.

It had been reported earlier this week that the game could go ahead behind closed doors, but it’s now unclear when the game will take place.
