PARMA goalkeeper Sebastien Frey has insisted that he never intended to leave his club, despite high-profile interest from the likes of Manchester United.

Frey's form in Italy has long earned him attention from the top sides in the world.

However the talented goalkeeper is not swayed by interest from The Premiership - or other Italian teams.

"I went on holiday absolutely tranquil," said Frey.

"The reason for this is that I absolutely believe in Parma and their project.

"I am happy to stay here. It is what I wanted.

"This is the way I have felt all along."

The Frenchman is hopeful that Parma can put a disappointing Uefa Cup campaign last season behind them.

"I think we need to go one better than last season," added Frey.

"We cannot fail [in Europe] two seasons in a row.

"But we are training well, and I am sure that we can produce this season."
