"Today, we'll be playing our fourth pre-season match against a good Italian team. The players need to keep up the work they've been doing, particularly when it comes to keeping the ball moving. We must be wary of Parma on the break."
"It's a different proposition compared with the previous games. We'll be measuring up against a different kind of team. We'll see if all the work we've done since returning to training bears fruit."
"This an important game for us. Parma are a good Italian side and will want to beat us. We need to focus on our game. We've been working well since returning to training. We're going to Parma to win."
"Parma are a very physical, very technical side. The Italian league is tough.We'll need to be on our guard as it won't be easy against them. They have Cassano, Amauri, Biabiany... all great players."
