Parma Coach Pasquale Marino welcomes the club he left in the summer. “It'll be my first time facing Udinese as an opponent.”
The tactician cannot deny he is moved by the prospect of taking on the Friulani.
“It'll be my first time facing Udinese as an opponent,” he said in a Press conference.
“I can never forget how well the club treated me and my family. They were three unforgettable years and very satisfying on a professional level, too.
“Aside from the fact I am facing my former club, we must try to bring home the three points. It won't be easy, as Udinese have players of great quality.”
Parma must do without Luca Antonelli, Fernando Marques, Alberto Paloschi and Daniele Galloppa, so Hernan Crespo should again lead a trident attack.
Parma squad: Mirante, Pavarini, Russo; Dellafiore, Lucarelli, Paci, Paletta, Pisano, Feltscher, Zaccardo, Ze Eduardo; Candreva, Dzemaili, Gobbi, Morrone, Pereira, Valiani; Angelo, Bojinov, Crespo, Giovinco
