Donadoni warns Parma players could go on strike today

Parma coach Roberto Donadoni has warned his players could go on strike today.

The Ducali have been relegated for some time and under administration since March.

"The administrators spoke to the side and we will decide on a strike after the training session," said Donadoni.

"If everyone respects the pacts that were made, then we will do our duty to the end. We have done everything we could do.

"We reduced our outstanding wage bill by 75 per cent. It is only right that some accepted to reduce by 50 per cent, which is not the same thing.

"I spoke to (FIGC President Carlo) Tavecchio yesterday and he confirmed these are not credits to be added to the sporting debt. I believe he is a man of his word.

"The Lega Serie A is never clear in its position. They are always vague and don't give a sense of clarity about what action will be taken.

"This is the way our football world is treated now, leaving room for people who are sneaky.

"On the other hand, our locker room was formed with a bond of friendship and this created a few difficulties.

"We maintained a certain approach to go all the way and some were left behind. They are all good lads and perhaps were sent down the wrong path by other people. Nobody is pointing the gun at anyone."
