Official: Parma appoint Colomba

Relegated threatened Parma have officially announced the appointment of Franco Colomba.

Pasquale Marino was fired on Sunday after Parma lost 2-1 at home to bottom club Bari.

Colomba will be formally unveiled this afternoon at the club's training ground in Collecchio.

He will take his first training session this evening ahead of Sunday's trip to Lazio.

Colomba helped Bologna survive last season.

He was relieved of his duties two days prior to the start of the current campaign.
