We will see how our ex-coach will do with a smaller serie A club. His recent experiences in Spain have not been very uplifting.

Inter will face Parma in the last match of the season, may 18th.

President Tommaso Ghirardi is ready to unveil Hector Cuper as the new Coach of Parma this evening.

Di Carlo was given his marching orders after the Crociati’s 2-1 defeat against Sampdoria on Sunday.

After two days of fierce speculation with Nevio Scala, Gianni De Biasi and Carlo Mazzone in the frame, Ducali chief Ghirardi has revealed his selection.

“The contract hasn’t been signed yet, but the deal is practically done,” he stated at the Collecchio Sports Centre.

“We had 36 hours to decide and in the end we opted for an experienced boss like Cuper because he can quickly help us out of this situation.

“Cuper will arrive in Italy later this afternoon and we will formalise the deal that is already in place.

“We have spoken on the telephone and hopefully a contract will be signed this evening.”

The new man joins Parma with the Emilia-Romagna outfit only clear of the drop zone on goal difference.

Cuper has been out of work since leaving Real Betis last year and is best remembered in the peninsula for his spell at Inter.

The Argentine tactician was at San Siro between 2001 and 2003 when he secured second and third-placed finishes and lost out to city rivals Milan in the Champions League semi-finals of 2002-03.
