Collecchio, 19 April 2021 – Javier Ribalta, Parma Calcio’s new Managing Director – Sport, began his role this morning. This is what he had to say at the start of his Crociati adventure:

“I’m proud to start this new adventure. The current situation isn’t one of the easiest, but this is a solid and ambitious Club that wants to grow and become stronger. I’m very happy with my choice to come here. This morning, I talked to the President, Sporting Director, Vice Sporting Director, Coach, staff and team. I’m at the Club’s disposal and will immediately make a contribution. Before introducing myself to the press and city, I’ll use the next few weeks to get to know the place better and immerse myself in this new environment. My desire to do well is great.”
