Parma have signed former Italy international defender Christian Panucci from Serie A rivals AS Roma, the club announced on their website on Friday.

The 36-year-old Panucci formerly played for AC Milan, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea among other clubs.

However, he fell out with Roma coach Luciano Spalletti midway through last season and was freezed out of the first team picture until making a humbling public apology.

Panucci was unhappy at losing his place in the starting line up last season with Philppe Mexes and Juan preferred at centre-back and Marco Motta given the right-back berth.

He played 57 times for his country and has made more than 600 appearances for clubs in four different countries.

Parma were promoted back to Serie A at the first attempt last season after finishing second in Serie B.
