Suzuki still out in the friendly of Sint-Truiden: the goalkeeper is only waiting for Parma

Zion Suzuki keep waiting for the Parma. In the friendly that the St. Truiden played today against Ajax, the goalkeeper started once again on the bench. After having also chosen to give up the Olympics and having watched his teammates from the sidelines in the test against Twente, the impression is that his transfer to Italy is not far away.

Mauro Pederzoli, Parma’s sporting director, spoke about the goalkeeper in the press conference to present Emanuele Valeri: “I know the rules of the game well and I accept them, but I cannot lend myself to the name game. Suzuki is a world-class goalkeeper for his age. He is extraordinary on a technical level and is highly regarded, he is sought after throughout Europe and beyond. It is a name that I am happy to see linked to us. I find it hard to express myself on other names, it makes no sense to name names, they are not players even one step away from being ours. Almqvist is also a valuable player, he showed it in Lecce, but there is nothing concrete”.

In the season just ended, the 2023-2024, he played 32 games, of which 22 in the Jupiler Pro League and 10 in the championship playoffs, conceding a total of 50 goals and keeping a clean sheet on only 6 occasions.
