Castelrotto, 12 July 2021 – Parma Calcio’s summer preparations are about to begin. Before the first training session, Coach Maresca had the following to say:

“Beyond my excitement, I’m happy that we’re getting the ball rolling and I’ll be able to get to know the lads on a daily basis. There’s great enthusiasm and desire to get things going. This is a very nice location, and we’ll get to know what the pitch is like. All the prerequisites are there to start in the right way.

“There’s a lot of work to do, and we’re happy that we’re now kicking things off. These preparations will involve trying to explain and make clear how we want to play. First and foremost, we want to get to know the lads, which is the most important thing. Then, day by day, I’m certain that we’ll see improvements.”
