Tommaso Ghirardi has put Parma up for sale and tendered his resignation as president.

He announced both moves in a press conference on Friday after the Gialloblu were denied a UEFA license to play in next season's Europa League due to financial irregularities.

"We are good people who run a good house," Ghirardi said. "But they have managed to push me away from the game.

"I'm done with football. I'm resigning as Parma president and as of July 1, a new story will begin.

"The 100 per cent shares of Parma are now for sale."
