Terrible news from Italy sends world of football into almost universal dismay.
Reports have been emanating from Italy over the past few days of the terrible financial situation at Serie A side Parma but it now seems the situation has become so dire that the club has been forced to financially dissolved and will automatically be relegated to Serie B.

It’s quite unbelievable that a team of such style, flair and success of the 90s could face a situation as devastating as this.
A club with the kind of names such as Asprilla, Brolin, Zola Buffon lived long in the memory of football fans of a certain generation and many have acted with disappointment and misery to the news on Twitter.

Only 14 clubs have won more major European trophies than Parma. A sad day for a massive club. pic.twitter.com/ap3e7c0nay — Ollie Davis (@Ollie_Davis) February 21, 2015
