Parma are now in Serie D after their bankruptcy.
"Seeing Parma in Serie D is something I can't understand," the former striker told Sky Italia.
“If I think back to those years [I spent there], the players they had… to see the club in Serie D is sad, but I'm comforted by the fact the new owners seem to be doing things right.
“There are people with quality and ability, from [President Nevio] Scala to [Lorenzo] Minotti and [Luigi] Appoloni, who care for Parma.
“I hope this will be the beginning of a great recovery."
