Parma coach Marco Bertani has named a festive tree for all the seasons, including Christmas, and also a children’s room and an outdoor swimming pool for the winter.
“I hope that it will give you a sense of peace and joy,” Bertani told reporters after a training session on Tuesday.
“We have a Christmas tree, a swimming pool and a children room.
I’m sure that it can help people to enjoy the season.”
The manager was speaking ahead of a game with Parma at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night, which is the first match of the season for the Parma team.
The Parma squad, which has scored 17 goals in 22 games, also named a player who will be named on Thursday, the club announced.
Parma’s players have been named to the honour of the Tree of Hope.
Bertani said the club wanted to thank the players for their “fans’ support”.
“We will not accept this gesture, but it’s a good gesture,” Bertini said.
“In the beginning we wanted to keep it quiet, but we are happy to announce this on behalf of everyone.”
I’ve been playing in a lot of games in the last few years and I can say that I haven’t played in a year when the players have asked me to bring this Tree of hope.
“It is a symbol of what we do, a symbol for all who come to our matches and we want to celebrate this tradition for all.”
Parma play Sassuolo in the Serie A final on Wednesday (19:00 GMT).
