Judging them only by the results, last season was a positive one for Parma as they managed to build on the good done the previous campaign, finishing 11th without ever really being involved in the fight for salvation. However, the management were not too happy for the way things actually went as they eventually parted ways with coach D’Aversa, who had led them all the way up to the Serie A from the Lega Pro in just 3 years. It is true that the team underperformed once the season re-started after the Covid-19 break but the coach had had to cope with an unaccountable number of injuries that anyway plagued the squad most of the campaign. With D’Aversa sacked, the management gave the reins to Fabrizio Liverani, who had just achieved relegation with Lecce in the very last game of the season, after a very mixed campaign. So far, Parma have been one of the least active clubs in the market both in terms of acquisitions or sales. In fact, they mostly invested in turning into permanent deals the loans of players like Sepe, Pezzella, Hernani, Inglese or Kurtic, while also seeing a bunch of loanees returning from seasons elsewhere, most of whom are unlikely to find playing chances at the club. On the other hand, they only lost versatile midfielder Barillà, who had begun the past campaign as a starter but saw his playing time reduced from mid-January, and, most of all, rising star Kulusevski, who returned to Juventus, his parent club. Barely 20-years old, the Swedish international scored 10 goals and served 9 assists in the past campaign, while proving capable of playing all roles in the midfield or attack. His departure will cost Parma a lot, especially if they do not manage to replace him properly. And if they also end up losing Gervinho, who was still capable of scoring 7 goals and serving 4 assists despite at one point considering quitting the club. He might very well do it this time around, and not too surprisingly, the management are now mostly looking for centre-forwards or wingers also to build some depth in an attack where Cornelius and Inglese can be impressive but are always too injury-prone.

Target


Parma should easily achieve salvation but that is all they might be going for if they do not attract any new forwards soon.

Season Review
2019/2020

№11: Parma

After achieving safety comfortably in their first season back in Serie A, consolidation was Parma's goal this term and they overachieved in that regard. Finishing three places higher and 8 points better off is a sure sign that they have re-established themselves where they belong in the top flight. Parma started the season slowly with 3 defeats from their first 4 Serie A games but quickly reversed with 3 wins from their next 4, including a memorable 5-1 hammering of Genoa. The Ducali began to pick up some more great results towards the end of the year with a draw at Inter and victories over Napoli and Roma. They remained solidly in contention for a potential European place before the Coronavirus pandemic put everything on hold. Parma came back after lockdown and, after seemingly securing their safety, their form dipped drastically.They picked up just a point from 7 league games and suddenly realised that they weren't actually safe. Another victory over Napoli revived them to win 3 of their last 4 matches and finish comfortably in mid-table. Roberto D’Aversa's side were one of a handful of unfancied teams who drew plaudits for their style of football. The Ducali operated as almost exclusively a counter-attacking team last season and those strengths were evident again this term, as they picked up more points on the road than at home. However, they were much more proactive and expansive overall, scoring 15 more goals in Serie A than last season. The most goals out of any team in the bottom half. Andreas Cornelius arrived in the summer and ended the season as top scorer with 12 goals, including two excellent hat-tricks. He carried the burden up front in the absence of the injured Roberto Inglese. Gervinho remained a huge weapon in Parma's arsenal with his running power on the break. Juraj Kucka was a powerhouse in midfield whilst veteran Bruno Alves kept defying his age with imperious displays at the back The breakout star in all of Serie A was Dejan Kulusevski. The young Swede's dynamic performances made Parma a far more potent attacking threat, contributing 10 goals and 9 assists in his first full season as a bona fide professional. Parma won't be able to count on Kulusevski next season with champions Juventus having already snapped him up but the supporters had been prepared for that for a while. What they weren't expecting was for D'Aversa to also be leaving. The manager who guided the club to back-to-back promotions and this impressive season was unceremoniously sacked due to differences with the club. Fabio Liverani has been appointed after gaining praise for his style of play despite relegation with Lecce.
