Lucarelli: 'I attacked Cassano'

Parma legend Alessandro Lucarelli reveals he had to be physically dragged away from attacking then-teammate Antonio Cassano.

The incident occurred in 2014-15, when Parma were hurtling towards bankruptcy and players went unpaid for months.

Lucarelli stuck with the Ducali even after they went under, playing on through their revival from Serie D back to the top flight with three consecutive promotions.

“We had all agreed to stay quiet on the issue of late payments, including Cassano,” Lucarelli wrote in his autobiography.

In Italy, it is normal to witness football clubs reach the pinnacle of success and then suddenly fall due to some form of bankruptcy.

Over the years, this has been the story for many small or mid-table Italian clubs. But if there is one club that strongly represents triumph and bankruptcy within Calcio, this title would go to Parma - the kings of back-to-back promotions.
