Did you Know?

It also reached the Coppa Italia Final, where they were defeated by Juventus. Asprilla was instrumental in Parma’s run to the UEFA Cup Final, with three goals over two legs in the semi final against Germany’s Bayer Leverkusen. In the final itself, Asprilla was in the starting XI for both legs as Parma defeated Juventus 2–1 on aggregate.

Things to Know:

Parma Associazione Calcio played its sixth consecutive Serie A season, which was the last under legendary coach Nevio Scala, who stepped down at the end of the season. Defensive stalwarts Alberto Di Chiara and Lorenzo Minotti also left the club following the season’s conclusion. Despite being only one point behind third-placed Lazio, Parma finished 6th in the standings. In contrast to the previous four seasons, Parma did not win any cups either. The most significant moment of Parma’s season was the debut of the club’s new superstar, 17-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who saved a penalty on his debut against A.C. Milan.

Thuram Lilian

Did you Know?

In July 1996, Thuram made a high-profile transfer to Italy to join Serie A club Parma. In his first season, he made over 40 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring one goal, as Parma finished second in the 1996–97 Serie A to Juventus. He maintained a starting position in defence throughout his time with Parma, making 163 Serie A appearances and scoring one league goal. In all, he made over 200 appearances for the club, really making a name for himself, also earning caps for France. Following another overly impressive season in 2000–01, where Parma reached the Coppa Italia final, and finishing the Serie A season in fourth place, Thuram, along with teammate Gianluigi Buffon, transferred to Juventus. His transfer cost the club 80,000 million Italian lire (€41,316,552). While at Parma, along with eventual Juventus teammates Buffon and Fabio Cannavaro, Thuram won both the UEFA Cup and the Coppa Italia during the 1998–99 season, immediately followed by the 1999 Supercoppa Italiana.

Things to Know:

Parma came the closest it had ever been to winning the Italian championship, but came up short by finishing only two points against Juventus. Young goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, along with new recruits Lilian Thuram, Enrico Chiesa and Hernán Crespo, proved to be the driving force in Parma’s title bid, which nearly reached ultimate success. However, a dubious penalty for Juventus in a 1–1 draw against the Turin club in May sealed Juventus’ title.

Did you Know?

After a few years in the third and second levels (winning the 1992–93 Serie B title with AC Reggiana), Bucci made his Serie A debut playing for Parma F.C., in a league match against Udinese Calcio on 29 August 1993. He soon achieved prominence during a particularly successful stint with the club, winning an UEFA Supercup in 1993, and an UEFA Cup in 1995; he also received runners-up medals in the Coppa Italia, in the Cup Winners’ Cup, and in Serie A with the club. At Parma, however, Bucci was soon overtaken by the emergence of 17-year-old Primavera keeper Gianluigi Buffon during the 1996–97 season, which moved Bucci to leave the team in order to play more regularly. After six months without a club, Bucci moved back to Parma in January 2005 to replace Gianluca Berti who left for Torino F.C., initially as a reserve goalkeeper. He was the first choice after Sébastien Frey’s departure, ahead of Cristiano Lupatelli and Matteo Guardalben in the 2005–06 season, Alfonso De Lucia and Fabio Virgili in the 2006–07 season, Nicola Pavarini and Radek Petr in the 2007–08 season. After Parma’s relegated he was released in June 2008.

Buffon celebrated the save by showing the Parma fans a Superman T-shirt, which he was wearing underneath his jersey; the nickname was also a reference to Buffon’s athleticism, agility and aerial ability

Did you Know?

This shirt was used by Alain Boghossian on September 15 2001 just four days later the tragedy of World Trade Center happened in New York on September 11th. To commemorate this tragedy three Serie A teams, Internazionale F.C., Brescia and Parma decided to play the first game after it without the sponsor on their shirt. While Internazionale F.C. played the game simply hiding the regular Pirelli sponsor with a black drape, the other two teams played the game without any sponsor on chest keeping it completely clean. But since the game was just few days after the tragedy so the team’s supplier (Champion) didn’t have enough time to deliver regular season’s shirts without the sponsor, the team used the previous season 2000-2001 shirt totally clean on chest.

Marchionni Marco

Things to Know:

Parma Associazione Calcio suffered a major setback in the 2001–02 season, after selling two of its three key ingredients in defence prior to the season. Goalkeeper and former youth-team product Gianluigi Buffon, and France international Lilian Thuram both departed for Juventus. Parma narrowly avoided relegation following a strong end to the season, and also won the Coppa Italia, beating Juventus 1–0 at home, before losing 2–1 away from home, but winning on the away goals rule.

Things to Know:

This shirt was never used by the team in any of the Tim Cup Final against Juventus. Both games were played by Parma with the blue away shirts. But this kind of shirt was prepared for the game. Please note that Parmalat sponsor on 2001-2002 shirts was only for the home Tim Cup competition as during the Serie A championship the team used JOY’s sponsor.

Things to Know:

The 2002 Coppa Italia Final was the final of the 2001–02 Coppa Italia, the 54th season of the top cup competition in Italian football. The match was played over two legs on 24 April and 10 May 2002 between Juventus and Parma. The final was won by Parma, who claimed their third Coppa Italia title with an away goals victory after the score was level at 2–2. This was the third Coppa Italia final between these two clubs, after the 1992 and 1995 finals, and the fifth of six major finals between the two sides.

Things to Know:

Following Toldo’s transfer to Inter, Frey was forced to find a new club. Frey transferred to Parma in the summer of 2001, for 8 billion lire cash plus Sérgio Conceição (Conceição was tagged for 32 billion lire, Internazionale’s official site claimed the cash was 10 billion lire), or 40 billion lire with whom he won the 2001–02 Coppa Italia. Frey was the replacement for Gianluigi Buffon who was sold to Juventus for a transfer fee of 100 billion lire which is currently the world-record goalkeeper’s transfer fee. It was a difficult task for Frey to replace Buffon. His experience in Parma was positive and provided ample opportunity for Frey to demonstrate his talent and justify the trust placed in him by the club. He became a key element of the squad and regularly played in the UEFA Cup. Frey won the 2001–02 edition of the Coppa Italia with Parma, leading the club to win the title for the third time since 1992; however, Frey never played in the tournament but he was always a substitute of Claudio Taffarel.

Adriano Leite Ribeiro


Things to Know:

Parma Associazione Calcio regained its respect following a lacklustre Serie A and Champions League performance the year before. Under new coach Cesare Prandelli, Parma played an offensive 4–3–3 formation, in which new offensive signings Adrian Mutu and Adriano starred. Both made up for the departure of Marco Di Vaio to Juventus. Mutu scored 18 goals from the left wing, and Parma accepted a multimillion-pound offer from Chelsea in the summer, which meant the Romanian international only spent a year at the club. Also impressing were goalkeeper Sébastien Frey and young centre-halves Matteo Ferrari and Daniele Bonera, who proved to be acceptable replacements for departed captain Fabio Cannavaro, who had joined Inter in late August 2002. Parma finished fifth in Serie A and missed out on Champions League qualification to Lazio by four points. It had the upper hand on Udinese for fifth on goal difference, and was one point clear of Chievo in seventh. That solitary point qualified Parma for European football in 2003–04. Parma also spent part of pre-season playing in the 2002 Amsterdam Tournament.

Biabiany Jonathan


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Jonathan Biabiany during the Serie A game against Sampdoria which took place in Genova on December 16th 2019. This shirt is a special released shirt to celebrate the 105th anniversary of Parma’s team and it has a special “105” embroidered on chest. Biabiany joined Parma three times in his career. The first one was in July 2009, when the player was loaned to Parma, who had recently been promoted back to Serie A. He featured in the first team for the first few league matches. After international duty for France’s under-21 team, he did not play again for Parma due to minor injuries until late November. Notably, he scored both of Parma’s goals in a 2–2 draw with Genoa in Round 15, his first two Serie A goals. On 1 February 2010, Parma gained half the rights to Biabiany, as part of a deal that sent McDonald Mariga to Inter. Inter later revealed that Biabiany was valued €5 million at that time, thus it cost Parma €2.5 million for half of the rights. He ended the season with six goals and three assists in 30 appearances. The second one was On 24 June 2011 when Biabiany was signed to Parma on a loan deal with an option to purchase him outright from Sampdoria, a year after his departure from the Emilian club. He went on to feature in every Parma league game that season and the summer of 2012 saw him move to Parma in a co-ownership deal for €2.5 million on a three-year contract. On 2 February 2014, Biabiany extended his contract to 30 June 2018.[20] On 20 June 2014, Parma acquired Biabiany outright for another €1 million. After a strong 2013–14 season, Biabiany was set to move to Milan on the last day of the 2014 summer transfer window. After posing for a photo with the Milan scarf outside of the club headquarters, Biabiany failed his medical at what was set to become his new home with the Milan side’s medical staff uncovering a heart problem the player had. After extensive testing, doctors indicated that the Frenchman had an irregular heartbeat and would miss the first half of the season in order to have his condition treated. Biabiany returned to training in February 2015. On 11 April 2015, Biabiany terminated his contract with Parma by mutual consent. Parma was declared bankrupt in mid-season. And the third one was on 7 August 2018 when Biabiany signed a one-year contract with Parma in the first season of team’s return in Serie A.

Gervinho


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Gervinho during the game against Sampdoria which took place in Parma on May 5th 2019. This is a very special shirt used by the team only once. To celebrate the historic twinning between the fans, Parma Calcio 1913 and U.C. Sampdoria “exchanged” their shirts. The teams wore the special kits only in this game, thanks also to the collaboration of technical sponsors Errea and Joma and both clubs. The fans of Unione Calcio Sampdoria and Parma Calcio 1913 have had a friendship for nearly 30 years. The bond between the two clubs began in the 1990/91 season, during Parma’s first-ever season in Serie A. Parma’s two organised supporter’s clubs, ULTRAS Tito Cucchiaroni and Boys Parma, soon built up a good relationship with the Sampdoria fans – but it was a special banner that sealed the special bond. During Parma’s away trip to Marassi, the fans unveiled the message: “For you Europe, for you glory, for Sampdoria the Scudetto”. As it happened, Samp did win the league that year, with Parma finishing fifth. It was the first in a long line of gestures between the two sets of fans. So Sampdoria played this game in a special kit featuring Parma’s signature “crociata” design, while Parma wore a yellow and blue “blucerchiati” jerseys to honor the classical Sampdoria’s colored band of its jersey. The initiative, named “Blucrociati – not just colours”, mixed the salient features of two of the most iconic Italian kits of all times, though each team still played in their usual colors, to preserve the identity of the two clubs. The Blucerchiati shirt worn by the Parma players was produced by Errea and finished in yellow and blue. There are plenty of special details, with the classic cross of St George replaced by the coat of arms of the “Duchy of Parma” and the rear of the shirts featuring a triangle containing the Parma logo, just like the current Parma jerseys. Lettering on the side will read Parma Calcio vs Sampdoria, 5 May 2019 to make it even more special. The jerseys worn by the players in the game were put up for auction. Proceeds from sales of the Parma shirts were donated in full to the Istituto Gaslini in Genoa, while proceeds from the Sampdoria shirts went to Parma Children’s Hospital. Limited editions (400 shirts of Sampdoria’s kit) of both shirts were also available for fans to buy in both club online stores for 99 Euro. Of course match worn shirts had some slight differences….

Did you Know?

Also this style of shorts was exclusively done for the special kit worn by Parma’s players against Sampdoria on May 5th 2019 and it was never used anymore. These shorts were worn by Gervinho. Gervinho is generally deployed as a forward, more often on the wing, and takes a more attacking role than a typical midfielder. A quick, powerful, energetic, and agile player, he possesses good ball control and dribbling skills, which, coupled with his short, fast bursts of pace and sudden changes of direction, lead him to be considered a very direct player. Playing from the left allows him to cut in onto his favoured right foot to shoot. Although in a 4–4–2 formation, Gervinho can take on a more central role, but for both club and country is often utilized on either wing in a 4–3–3 formation. Rudi Garcia, who managed Gervinho at Lille and Roma, has described him as a player who needs confidence and who makes opportunities for his teammates. On 17 August 2018, Gervinho returned to Serie A by signing for Parma Calcio 1913 alongside his former Roma teammate Salih Uçan. He made his Parma debut as a substitute in a 1–0 away loss to S.P.A.L. nine days later, and on 1 September he scored on his first start for the club, a 2–1 home defeat to reigning champions Juventus. Three weeks afterwards, he scored a “staggering goal” in a 2–0 home win over Cagliari by running with the ball up the whole pitch. In Serie A round 22, on 2 February 2019, he scored two goals to earn a draw for Parma against Juventus in final score 3–3.

In both appearances, he replaced Simone Colombi for the second half, including versus Ukraine (born 1990 or later team). He was the reserve keeper for Colombi at the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship qualification, and he also played once. After Italy qualified to the next round, he did not receive any call-ups again.
