New Parma presented

Officials from the new Parma outfit which has been granted Serie D entry have adressed fans and media today.

The Ducali were declared bankrupt at the end of last season, and have been forced to begin again as an amateur side, Parma Calcio 1913.

“There’s a lot of responsibility,” technical manager Lorenzo Minotti said at a Press conference.

“There’s an obligation to win at all costs, and to get back into the professional Leagues, so that must always be present in the mind of the new people.”

Lucarelli: ‘I’ll stay with Parma’

Parma captain Alessandro Lucarelli confirms ‘I’ve expressed my willingness to stay for Serie D’, following bankruptcy.

The Ducali were declared insolvent last month, and as such will have to begin again next year in the amateur leagues.

All of their players have become free agents following the liquidation of the club, but it appears their captain is willing to join up again.

“This year, unfortunately, we didn’t have many high points, but beating Juventus was one of those,” Lucarelli told Mediaset.

Lucarelli: ‘Everything in vain’

Parma captain Alessandro Lucarelli laments ‘everything we’ve done has been in vain’ and hits out at the Lega Serie A.

The Ducali were declared bankrupt this afternoon, after a final deadline passed without a buyer, meaning the club will be forced to start again from the amateur leagues.

“To buy Parma would have taken €22.5m,” Lucarelli told reporters outside the courtroom, where the verdict was confirmed.

Lucarelli awaits Parma news

Alessandro Lucarelli doesn’t “even want to think about” the possibility of Parma going into Serie D.

The club was declared bankrupt in March and five auctions went by without a single formal bid.

Now two groups – one run by baseball legend Mike Piazza, the other by multiplex owner Giovanni Corrado – are in private negotiations.

If Parma don’t find a new owner and cancel their sporting debt of €22m by June 25, they won’t be allowed to register for the Serie B season.

Lucarelli: ‘Parma’s last chance’

Alessandro Lucarelli admits Parma are drinking in the last chance saloon, as he arrives for a crucial hearing.

A final auction for the Ducali yesterday failed to attract a concrete bid, and a bankruptcy judge will today decide whether to wind the club up or allow them to negotiate for a private sale.

If the decision is the former, Parma will have to start again from the amateur leagues next season, rather than in Serie B.

“I was hoping there’d be no need to be here, but here we are,” Lucarelli told reporters outside the courthouse.

Parma crunch meeting set

Parma’s future will be decided on Wednesday, as either they’ll go bankrupt or be allowed to negotiate a private sale.

Time is running out for the Ducali and on Tuesday there was a bitter blow, as the final auction did not receive a single bid even at the price of €4.5m.

The only envelope handed in was a declaration of interest from Giuseppe Corrado, who owns the Space Cinema multiplex chain in Italy.

Lucarelli: ‘Someone save Parma!’

Parma captain Alessandro Lucarelli reveals players have given up 75 per cent of their wages, and hopes a buyer can be found.

The Ducali are bankrupt and relegated, but can play in Serie B next season if a buyer can be found who will clear their sporting debt.

That debt has been reduced significantly, as it included player wages, a huge proportion of which the squad has surrendered.

“We have given up 75 per cent of what we are entitled to,” Lucarelli revealed in an interview with Radio Olympia.

Lucarelli pleads for Parma buyer

Alessandro Lucarelli admits Parma’s crisis is weighing on the players, and pleads for a buyer to come in.

The relegated Ducali will not be allowed to register for Serie B next season unless a €74m sporting debt is cleared, and the club captain admits the situation is difficult.

“It takes so much strength to move forward,” Lucarelli told Radio Crc.

“The situation weighs on us every day. We’ve been going along with this farce for many days now, and that’s simply because of pride, passion, and love for our work.

Lucarelli: ‘Parma or retirement’

Parma captain Alessandro Lucarelli says he’ll retire if he can’t stay with the club beyond this season.

The Ducali have been declared bankrupt, and are being funded by the Lega Serie A until the end of the season.

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio has stated that he believes the club will be sold, and if any potential new buyer pays the club’s €74m sporting debt they can begin again in Serie B next season.

“We hope that someone will buy Parma,” Lucarelli said in a Press conference at Collecchio today.
