Crespo has 'interesting offers'

Hernan Crespo may be 36 in July, but the veteran striker is still sought-after. “I have received interesting offers, but my priority is Parma.”

‘Valdanito' returned to his first Serie A club after spells at Lazio, Inter, Milan and Chelsea, where he is still scoring goals to keep them in the top flight.

“My contract expires at the end of the season and I want to keep playing where I feel I'm important to the club,” he said.

“I have received some interesting offers, but I decided to wait, because my priority is Parma. First of all we must achieve safety, then we'll think about the rest. After that, I'll listen to the club's plans and make my decisions based on those.”

The Ducali's hopes received a huge boost with their 1-0 victory away to fellow strugglers Sampdoria.

“We really needed that win, because it allows us to relax over the two weeks before the next game and winning a relegation dogfight away from home is pretty good.

“Having won such an important game helps us to prepare for the tricky encounter with Bari.”
