Cagliari president Massimo Cellino has handed coach Pierpaolo Bisoli a vote of confidence.
The Sardi currently lay joint bottom in Serie A with just one win in eight matches.
“After the game against Lazio I complimented Bisoli and the players who went out on the pitch with professionalism and commitment,” Cellino said.
“The defeat was undeserved for the quality of play and number of chances. I have certainly not put rumours of a sacking around.
“I've followed Bisoli's training sessions. I have seen a group of serious professionals who work with commitment.
“The results will arrive soon. We will have a good season. I am ready to bet that we will place higher than Lazio.
“Actually, I am telling the fans that if we don't do better than Lazio, I will refund their season tickets.”
