New Parma youth coach Cristiano Lucarelli is enjoying retirement.
“The result was beyond my greatest expectations. I always debut with a goal, so it was wonderful to start my coaching career with a victory too,” he told Radio CRC.
“I learned a great deal from Mazzarri and he inspired me. In fact, I told him that I’ll be the first member of a new school of management in the Mazzarri mould!
“In the last two years, I watched training sessions not so much with the eyes of a player, but rather those of an aspiring Coach.
“Thanks to Mazzarri I started understanding and studying tactics in football and can only thank him, as he opened up to me a world I had never considered.”
