Parma boss Franco Colomba insists the club are still not safe from relegation despite their surge up the table.
The Gialloblu looked in real danger of the drop until the appointment of Colomba at the start of April.
Despite losing their first game under the tactician, the Tardini outfit have won their last three – seeing them move six points above the drop zone with just nine more points on offer.
"We're not safe yet," the man who replaced Pasquale Marino told TMW. "Let's say that we are a step away because we still don't have the mathematical certainty.
"Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri says that he's still not won the Scudetto – despite just needing one more point – and I still don't feel safe.
"I'm not just talking this way for superstitious reasons either."
Colomba has been a revelation with the Gialloblu and he intends to stay with the outfit for some time to come.
"I've already made my decision," he stated. "My future is at Parma."
