Parma coach Roberto Donadoni has paid tribute to their former striker Hernan Crespo.

Donadoni commented on Crespo's emotional press conference this week, in which he retired from top football and rescinded his contract with Parma.

"His message was very touching. Everyone here is grateful for all that Hernan gave to Parma, just as Parma gave a great deal to him. I hope he can continue to have fun wherever he decides to play."
