Parma Must Give Everything Against Inter - Christian Panucci

While it may seem like a David versus Goliath match up, there has been no lack of self-belief and optimism emanating from the Parma camp over the past week.

Gialloblu defender Christian Panucci is looking forward to facing Inter at the San Siro on Sunday, and told his younger team-mates to enjoy themselves when they face the champions.

"We have a young squad, eager to do well and impress," the 36-year-old told Datasport.

"We must give our all, then if they were better we can congratulate them at the end of the game. We can do great things and therefore should not lack enthusiasm. I can't wait to play," the former Roma man added.

Opinions in Italy have been split by Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho, but Panucci declared that he was a fan of the "honest" tactician.

"I love sincere people who speak in a clear and direct way. Some may not like him, but he seems an honest person to me," he concluded.
