Parma director Pietro Leonardi insists that the 1-1 draw against Inter is the starting point in the Gialloblu's quest to avoid relegation.

Leonardi hopes that it is also the end of the team's recent poor form and the start of something even better.

"This is a big step for us in escaping what we have recently been going through," Leonardi stated to TMW after the match. "This result will give us a boost in avoiding relegation.

"We played a great match, with lots of spirit, remaining with 10 players and even going ahead on the scoreboard.

"We started well in the league, but then we hit a rough patch where we dropped points, and we started to fall down the table."
