Del Neri ignores Parma link

January 9, 2012

Luigi Del Neri has brushed aside speculation linking him with the Parma job.

Reports in Italy claimed Del Neri could be named as the new coach with the Ducale club considering a change.

Parma are winless in the last six league games and Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Inter Milan piled further pressure on coach Franco Colomba.

"Every day I am linked to a club,'' Del Neri said to Corriere dello Sport. "But I have decided to stay put until June. My aim is to return to coaching next season.''

Del Neri has been out of a job since parting company with Juventus last summer. Parma are 15th in the standings and host Siena on Sunday.
