Donadoni: 'Parma too timid'

Roberto Donadoni was disappointed with Parma’s performance at the Juventus Stadium. “We were too timid.”

The Ducali were beaten 2-0 in Turin this evening and only really threatened in the final half-hour.

“We conceded two goals in the space of four minutes. It’s a shame, because with a little more conviction and determination we could’ve done better, especially in the first half,” said the Coach.

“The team must grow, as we were too timid when faced with Juve’s aggressive approach. Dorlan Pabon has a great right foot, but the new players need time to settle in and understand the dynamics.”

There were some contentious incidents, as Stephan Lichtsteiner was offside when earning a penalty and the goal judge ruled Andrea Pirlo’s free kick had crossed the line.

“I don’t talk about referees,” insisted Donadoni. “The more eyes on the field, the better it is, but even then mistakes can happen. We need everyone to start seeing it this way, otherwise we’ll always be here talking about officials.”
