Donadoni not thinking about relegation

Parma coach Roberto Donadoni says he is not thinking about avoiding relegation after replacing the fired Franco Colomba.

Parma lost to Inter Milan 5-0 Saturday to take its winless streak to six matches. It is now in 15th place, seven points ahead of the relegation zone.

Donadoni says ''this is not a team which has the sole aim of surviving ... we shouldn't look over our shoulders but only to those who are above us, with the aim of moving above them.''

Donadoni coached Italy at the 2008 European Championship. His last job was with Cagliari, where he was fired in August.


Colomba's dismissal on Monday marks the 11th coaching change in the 20-team Serie A since August.
