Colomba wants mature Parma

Franco Colomba wants Parma to show “maturity and character” to fight back from their 4-1 drubbing in Turin.

The Ducali started the season on the wrong foot with a hammering against Juventus and hope to turn things around when Chievo visit the Stadio Tardini.

“Our opponents want a performance of intensity and quality. We are hungry to prove ourselves and make up for last week. What could emerge from that is a real battle,” said the Coach.

“I am interested in a performance that shows maturity and character. Results can go your way or not, but we must always maintain those characteristics. It is crucial that we keep up a strong record on home turf.

“Chievo can trouble anyone and we owe them a great deal of respect. This is why we are focusing on our own game and not what others are doing.”
