“The transition from the Bundesliga may be difficult but I will do everything possible to adapt as soon as possible and give my best.”

Talking about his football idols, he added:

“On a general level, Ronaldinho was my role model, but being Dutch, I cannot fail to mention champions like Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten and Frank Rijkaard.”

“There are many players who inspire me, it would be limiting to mention just a few.”

Zirkzee later talked about his arrival at Parma, saying:

“I immediately felt very comfortable here, it’s a big family. I like the city a lot, it’s all within a very short distance and I think it’s a perfect place for me to grow and improve.”

“I will try to give 100 per cent and if we do it all together, it would be possible to avoid relegation.”

“The ambitions are many and I’m confident to achieve them. I think Parma is a great city, it’s know for its gastronomy, which I particularly appreciate.”

“The chance to grow and develop my game, compared to Bayern’s, pushed me to come here. I will do everything to play as much as possible.”
