Crespo: ‘No Parma electricity’

Parma youth team Coach Hernan Crespo reveals they were only able to play “thanks to a favour from the gardeners” and have no electricity.

The senior squad’s Serie A match against Udinese was called off for tomorrow afternoon, as the club doesn’t have enough money to pay for stewards at the Stadio Tardini.

Today the Primavera team was able to play, “but we don’t know if there will be enough money for the trip to Sampdoria next week,” Crespo told Sky Sport Italia.

Today the Primavera team was able to play, “but we don’t know if there will be enough money for the trip to Sampdoria next week,” Crespo told Sky Sport Italia.

“It really hurts to see and live through this situation. We are all working just for the good of the lads and today only played because the gardeners did us a favour.

“We have cold showers because there is no electricity, so the players keep getting ill. We don’t even have guarantees for cleaning staff in the locker rooms.

“We are falling apart. We want to continue going forward, because we love this club and these lads, but it hurts to see the situation this training ground has been reduced to.

“I hope the institutions can move and save what can be saved. I’d like to see in person the financial guarantees that everyone receives wages, not just the players, but every member of Parma gets what they are owed.”

Nobody at the club has been paid since July 2014.
