Things to Know:

The 2010–11 season started well for Amauri, as he scored a brace in the UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds against Shamrock Rovers. After that, however, he was benched for most games under new manager Luigi Delneri. On 31 January 2011, Amauri joined former club Parma on loan until 30 June 2011. He enjoyed an excellent few months at the club, scoring seven times in 11 games and playing a significant role in Parma securing their place in Serie A for another year, as he formed an attacking tandem with former Juve teammate Sebastian Giovinco. Amauri returned to Juventus after his loan deal expired. Despite much talk that he was to be “offloaded”, no concrete deal was ever made. However, Juventus write-down the residual value of Amauri’s contract (which last until 30 June 2012) backdated to 2010–11 financial year, which worth €5.348 million on 30 June 2011 (~ ¼ of €22.8million). Juventus also wrote in the official translated press release that “unnamed” player “will be free from any obligation vis-à-vis Juventus commencing from January 2012, and who is no longer included in the new technical programme”. He remained in the squad for the 2011–12 season under manager Antonio Conte, but did not receive any call-ups. His number 11 shirt was also given to fullback Paolo De Ceglie.
