Parma coach Roberto Donadoni isn't worried about relegation, despite his new team's winless streak that was extended to six games when it lost to Inter Milan.
The loss left Parma in 15th place, seven points ahead of the relegation zone, and prompted the decision to fire Franco Colomba, the 11th coaching casualty of the season.
"This is not a team which has the sole aim of surviving," he said. "We shouldn’t look over our shoulders, but only to those who are above us, with the aim of moving above them.”
Donadoni, who played in MLS's opening season for the MetroStars, was fired by Cagliari two weeks before the start of the Serie A season.
