Renato Olive, who has been training with us for a few weeks now, will be officially presented today. He is a central midfielder, aged 33.




What do you think?

I think that he could give us the experience we need in central midfield. I'd give him a try next to Simplicio, its not that we have other world-class CMs, its only Grella and Bolano ;)

He used to be a fine player, back then when he was captain of Perugia, but didn't he play quite average for Napoli in Serie B the last couple of seasons?

Anyway: Strong defencive midfielder, who scores quite a lot. Mean header. And a leader. If he's in any kind of form he'll be useful. Can hardly be worse than Bolano anyway.

For sure...I agree anyone should be given a chance at this stage...Grella and Bolano have done little else but nothing this season...

Yeah, I remember him from his days in Bologna.

Nethertheless, a decent signing, at least with brought in some experience as of late.

Also I only remember him from his days in the t-shirt of Bologna.
But a player who is not good enough for Bologna or other teams. He will save us this year? I really hope so.......

I don't think we have much option to be honest on who we sign.

We probably first looked for; experience, low wage - before ability.

At the end of the day anyone the club signs is a gamble...we can't afford to buy anyone who is certain to strenghten the squad...

Sounds good .. can't do us any harm, and i assume he wasn't costly. Experience in central midfield is what we need.

Olive got the #8 shirt from Budel and seems to be just what we need, a true fighter who is also able to score goals. :thumbsup:

Olives sucks :tongue:

I don't know whether he will step up the gear for Parmas midfield but he is for sure better then Bolano.

thank god, finally came answer to this big hole in DM cause grella/bolano are two clowns who if you ask me I`d dump during summer transfer season, read EXIT!

Good signing Parma! and welcome Renato to our beloved Parma

Grella is far from a clown. He has a heck of talent, but is just having a bad year. He never really fit in with the squad. I'd be happy to see Olive take his place is the starting XI
