Former Chelsea and Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo admits he would love to coach his first European club Parma one day.

Crespo began life in the continent through Parma after switching over from River Plate in his native Argentina.


He spent four years with Parma before embarking on his more illustrious club spells, but brought his career a full circle with three seasons until 2011/12.

Having retired, Crespo would love to give coaching a try and he told Corriere dello Sport: "I want to wish Parma and coach Roberto Donadino all the best, but it's natural for me to say that to train Parma is one of my life goals."


Crespo made a total of 181 appearances and scored 85 goals for Parma during his time, which yielded a UEFA Cup victory alongside Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana successes.

Parma are currently 11th in Serie A after 12 games, but are winless in their last three league games.
