It's sad that Parma are having to resort to selling off old trophies to raise funds after being declared bankrupt and falling into administration.

The fallen Italian giants are in debt of more than £140million and have failed to pay players and staff as they search for new investors.

Relegated to Serie D, the top tier of non-league football in Italy, the club have resorted to selling off seven trophies they won during the 1990s in a bid to raise some cash.

Three Coppa Italias, won in 1992, 1999 and 2002, the 1993 Cup Winners' Cup, the 1994 European Super Cup, two Uefa Cups (1995 and 1999) and the 1999 Italian Super Cup are all for sale.

It's a sad state of affairs for a once great club.

Famously the Frenchman has won just two trophies in the last 11 seasons and not won the Premier League title since 2003-04 - when Melchiot was still a part of the Chelsea team under Claudio Ranieri.
