Parma director has no regrets about Pelle sale
The 28-year-old forward moved from Parma to Dutch giants Feyenoord in August 2012 and he has since become a prolific goalscorer in the Eredevisie. Despite Pelle’s scoring feats, Leonardi has no issue with letting him go.
“Pelle? When a player feels snubbed then it is right that he wants to leave,” Leonardi told Teleducato.
“The desire of the player is what really counts and, if a club makes the right offer, then it is right to make the player happy by agreeing to a sale.”
Pelle finished second in the goalscoring last season after finding the back of the net 27 times in 29 matches, four less than Vitesse’s Wilfried Bony.
Pelle has maintained his impressive form, scoring six goals in just five league matches for the Dutch giants this season.
