Inside the Opposition
Parma FC are one of Italy’s premier clubs, finishing the 2012/13 season in 10th place in the Serie A table under the stewardship of manager Roberto Donadoni.
The club have a rich history which has seen multiple successes in European competition over the years but, like Fulham, they have also known what it is like to be at the very bottom and work your way back up to the top. With a commitment to playing attacking football and developing players through their Academy, I Crociati (managed at the time by Carlo Ancelotti) came close to breaking up the domination of Scudetto winners in 1996/97 when they finished second behind Juventus by two points.
In a golden time for the club in the 90s, Parma boasted a fine lineup of former Italy strikers including Enrico Chiesa and Gianfranco Zola and also had the likes of Lillian Thuram, Juan Sebastian Veron, Faustino Asprilla and Hristo Stoichkov on their books.
Now under Donadoni’s leadership, the club are looking to get back into the elite of Italy and showed they still have what it takes by beating Internazionale 1-0 in November; finishing with only one defeat in their last five games to secure a place in the top half of the table.
