Parma will keep boss Colomba

Parma President Tommaso Ghirardi has confirmed that Franco Colomba will remain as Coach for next season.

"Franco Colomba will still be with us next term," the Gialloblu official noted on Wednesday morning.

Colomba was brought in by the Tardini outfit after they decided to sack Pasquale Marino as the threat of relegation loomed.

Despite losing his first game in charge against Lazio, Colomba then masterminded three successive wins against Inter, Udinese and Palermo.

Parma, who still have to play Juventus and Cagliari, are safe from the drop thanks to their 42 points and the fact that they have beaten Sampdoria twice this term.

Colomba started the campaign at Bologna, but was dismissed a day before their Week 1 game against Inter.
