Parma players promote club sale

Parma's players will come together to promote the club's sale to potential buyers, quoting a price of €40-50m.

The Ducali's financial crisis, which has seen fixtures postponed, has become a national scandal and many believe the only way to save the club would be for a new owner to step in.

Were a new President to come in and pay the club’s sporting debts, the Emilian side would be granted entry to Serie B next season.

Manenti slams Tavecchio

Parma President Giampietro Manenti slams FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio and mayor Federico Pizzarotti - ‘the club is not theirs’.

The Ducali patron compared the two to Toto and Nino Taranto, actors from the Italian film Tototraffa ’62, whose characters try to sell Rome’s Trevi fountain to an unwitting American tourist, when of course they don’t own it.

“Why haven’t I paid yet?” Manenti considered as he spoke to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Parma mayor: ‘Last game for Manenti’

Mayor Federico Pizzarotti says he hopes that Sunday’s draw with Atalanta marks Giampietro Manenti’s last home match as Parma President.

The Ducali fulfilled their fixture this weekend, for the first time in two weeks, but still face a bankruptcy hearing on March 19.

“The reception for Manenti and the old leadership is symptomatic of the fact we have to start a new chapter,” Pizzarotti told journalists after the game.

‘Sustainability starts from Parma’

City mayor Federico Pizzarotti suggests a reform of football should start from Parma, and says rules in football 'are changing'.

On from Italian Football Federation President Carlo Tavecchio's statements on saving the Emiliani from being wiped out by their own debts, the mayor discussed the club's individual employees.

“We had a meeting with the employees who are not footballers, those who really need protection.

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.

Pizzarotti: ’40 per cent chance of playing'

Mayor Federico Pizzarotti says the odds of Parma playing their next game against Atalanta have fallen to less than fifty per cent.

The mayor was in a meeting yesterday with the AIC and the team in an attempt to organise the failing club and get the championship back on track, having failed to play their last two fixtures.

His first assessment was cautiously optimistic, saying that Parma had a 50 per cent chance of playing their next game.

But today's statements, reported by ParmaLive.com, reveal that he is less bright in his outlook.

'Parma to play if conditions are met'

City mayor and AIC President Damiano Tommasi say Parma will play against Atalanta 'if conditions are met'.

The Ducali were forced to postpone their last two Serie A games as the club was unable to pay the costs and the staff for the event.

Mayor Federico Pizzarotti met with Tommasi and with the team today in yet another attempt to bring some order to the club.

“The game [between Parma and Atalanta, scheduled for March 8] will be played if the conditions for it are met,” said Tommasi to Sky Sports.

Parma: Tardini power cut off

Parma’s financial crisis drags on and the Stadio Tardini even had its electricity cut off over unpaid bills.

The team called off their last two games against Udinese and Genoa in order to force the authorities to take action.

The situation is increasingly farcical, as bailiffs have taken away anything from Coach Roberto Donadoni’s bench in the locker room to printers, washing machines, vehicles and even coat hooks.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals on Saturday the electricity supply to the Stadio Tardini was cut off due to unpaid bills.

Manenti: 'Parma money next week'

Parma President Giampietro Manenti hit back at the Mayor and insists “the money will arrive early next week.”

Mayor Federico Pizzarotti bitterly criticised Manenti after yesterday’s meeting, claiming there was no clear plan and he was “not credible” for the club’s safety.

“I don’t care what the Mayor says. I am not running an election campaign, nor do I have political interests to safeguard,” Manenti told Teleducato today.
