Parma defender Giulio Falcone insists no-one is giving up on their relegation battle.

"There's no resignation in our camp," he maintained. "The declarations made by (president Tommaso) Ghirardi are his own thoughts - they weren't rash comments but neither was it a sign of surrender.

"We are all up to date with his opinions and know it's time for us all to take our own approach.

"There will be some tension for the game against Genoa and we know that it is a must-win.

"There's no more time for appeals, we just need to go out there and give our all with the right spirit.

"Our fans are a big factor. We are expecting lots of them to turn up to the Tardini and give us their support for the game of our season."
