It is a dark, dark day for fans of the glory days of Italian football.
Parma, one of the most universally loved Italian teams of the '90s have been in dire straights as of late, with the club's financial problems utterly crippling the once great club to the point where it has changed it's name and will play in non-league football.
Hernan Crespo, who was recently a coach at Parma, previously described the situation where the club's players couldn't shower at the training ground as the water had been shut off, but this tweet from BeIN Sports' Italian football analyst Matteo Bonetti has really hit home just how bad things are.
The sadness continues for Parma, as the club is now selling their trophies. Accepting bids for both their UEFA & Coppa Italia cups.

This can't be allowed to happen. There has to be another way. We recently put together an article on the current occupations and locations of the great Parma team that won that UEFA Cup in 1999, and it was clear from the reaction that a lot of our readers also had a soft spot for the blue and yellow.
Hopefully something can be done to save the club, but we're quickly running out of hope.
