MILAN - Former Udinese coach Pasquale
Marino has agreed to take over at Parma, the Serie A side said
Marino changes jobs with Francesco Guidolin, who quit Parma
for Udinese last month, although president Tommaso Ghirardi has
denied it is a swap deal.
"The agreement was reached today but this is not a swap
between coaches. Guidolin had another year on his contract but
chose to leave. We looked around and chose Marino," the Parma
president told Sky TV.
"We believe he is a well-prepared coach who plays a vibrant
game which will excite our fans."
Parma finished a heady eighth in their first season back in
the top flight last term and Guidolin's decision to leave
shocked the club.
Marino left Udinese at the end of the campaign having been
sacked earlier in the season only to be brought back on a
short-term contract to save them from relegation.
