‘Parma proposals reasonable’

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio confirms he’s on his way to meet the Parma players, to put forward ‘reasonable’ proposals.

The Lega Serie A has agreed a deal to fund the Ducali until the end of the season in the event that the club is declared bankrupt on March 19.

The deal is contigent on the Emilian side’s players fulfilling their two interim fixtures, against Atalanta and Sassuolo, and Tavecchio is travelling to Collecchio to try and reach a deal.

Decisive day for Parma

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio will meet with the Parma squad and the AIC while a meeting of the Lega Serie A will take place.

The Emilian side have not played either of their last two fixtures - against Udinese and Genoa - and the players have offered no guarantees that they’ll play this weekend either.

Kit sponsor Errea has offered to pay the costs of the players for their next two games to take them through to March 19, when the club faces a bankruptcy hearing.

FIGC hatch Parma plan

The details of Carlo Tavecchio’s ‘plan’ to save Parma have been revealed, but it may prove difficult to implement.

The FIGC President said yesterday that a scheme was in place to ensure that the Ducali finish the season, as they struggle to avoid bankruptcy.

According the Corriere dello Sport, the plan has three main elements. The first is that funds will be raised from the other Serie A clubs in order to pay the Emilian side’s costs for the rest of the season.

FIGC: 'Plan for Parma to play'

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio and the Mayor of Parma set out a “plan” to get the team playing this weekend.

The last two Serie A fixtures have been postponed indefinitely due to the financial crisis crushing the club.

The Ducali are due to host Atalanta on Sunday afternoon and it remains to be seen whether it will go ahead, or indeed where, seeing as the electricity to the Stadio Tardini has been cut over unpaid bills.

“We have set out a plan to make sure they can play on Sunday,” Tavecchio told news agency ANSA.

Tavecchio: ‘Rules could be changed’

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio says ownership rules for Italian clubs could be changed in light of the crisis at Parma.

The Ducali have had three different owners this season, with the latest President, Giampietro Manenti acquiring the club for €1 and so far failing to address debts.

“We’ve been following the Parma situation for a long time, not just a few days ago,” Tavecchio told Rai, hitting back at Alessandro Lucarelli.

Lucarelli: ‘Parma are doomed’

Alessandro Lucarelli fears Parma are ‘doomed’ and hits out at Cesena President Giorgio Lugarese for saying he wouldn’t help save them.

The Ducali may not make it to the end of the season, as the club faces a bankruptcy hearing on March 19, and no-one has been paid since July.

“We’re doomed to going under, it doesn’t take a genius to figure it out,” Lucarelli told La Repubblica.

“The only hope that remains is controlled administration and someone takes over at auction.

Lucarelli: ‘FIGC must protect clubs’

Parma captain Alessandro Lucarelli slams the FIGC and Carlo Tavecchio, saying that regulations aren’t sufficient to protect clubs.

The Ducali have not played their last two Serie A fixtures as the club battles against bankruptcy, with no-one at the club having been paid since July.

“Tavecchio saying that he wants the accounts taken to court immediately shows that he wants to wash his hands of this and hand things over to the courts,” Lucarelli told Rai Due.

Tavecchio: ‘Last chance for Parma’

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio warns the postponement of Sunday’s game is the ‘last lifeline’ for crisis-hit Parma.

The Ducali players today asked for their match at Genoa to be postponed after announcing that they would not play.

If the FIGC had refused, Parma would have been in breach of regulations and thrown out of the League, but the postponement was granted.

“This is the last lifeline for Parma,” Tavecchio said in a Press conference.

Genoa-Parma postponed, not cancelled

The FIGC has given the go-ahead for Parma’s match at Genoa on Sunday to be postponed, so the Ducali are not yet doomed.

The club’s players have refused to play the match after six months of unpaid wages for themselves and the staff, and asked for the game to be postponed.

If that request had been refused and Parma didn’t take the field, they’d have been in breach of League rules and thrown out of Serie A.

However, FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio has allowed the game to be suspended and played at a later date.
