Collecchio, 15 January 2022 – The thoughts of new Crociati signing Filippo Costa:

“My first thought when I found out I was coming to Parma? To tell you the truth, I didn’t really believe it, also because I’ve endured six difficult months. I don’t think a better solution would have been possible: this is a historic club with big objectives, and we’re hoping to achieve them.

“My approach to this new adventure? I’ll have the spirit of someone who’s been through tough times and who can’t wait to redeem themselves. I’ll do everything to put myself at the disposal of the Coach and my teammates.

“The group? I already know a few people here: I was at Chievo at the same time as Roberto Inglese, I played with Gennaro Tutino at international level, and I was also a teammate of Pasquale Schiattarella for two and a half years in Ferrara. I’m getting to know the others, but they’re all great guys. They’ve welcomed me with open arms, and I’d like to thank them.

“Iachini? In terms of his character, the Coach is a very determined and strong man. This is what we need in order to get back on track and try to achieve our objectives.”
