Former AC Milan midfielder Juraj Kucka confirmed that he will return to the Serie A with Parma

The Slovakian midfielder previously played in Italy between 2011 to 2017 for Genoa and Milan before opting to leave for Turkish side Trabzonspor for an annual salary of €2.25m in a three-year contract.

But things haven’t gone quite so well for Kucka this season in Turkey with just eight appearances in Trabzonspor’s 17 Super Lig games.

The 31-year-old has been restricted to just two starts in the league and he’s now opted to end his 18-month spell at Trabzonspor in favour of a reported three-and-a-half-year contract with Parma.

The Argentinean also admits that his future at the Dall'Ara is also up in the air.

“I’m happy to be here, Parma convinced me in every way,” Kucka told Sky Sport Italia, via Football-Italia.

“I hope to start over better than when I left [Italy]. The somersaults? I do less of them now as I’ve got older, but I’ll always try to score goals.”

The Slovakia international managed 13 goals and 11 assists in 181 Serie A appearances for both Genoa and Milan.
