Gigi del Neri insists he's not a dead man walking at Juventus.

Del Neri is expected for the high jump after a dismal run of results.

"The important thing is not to pre-judge," insisted the coach. "The team needs support. I am happy to take the jeers, but the important thing is that they don't jeer my players. I hope tomorrow they'll fight alongside us to beat Brescia.

"I still feel that I am the Juventus Coach and not a caretaker manager. I will continue to be the Juventus Coach as long as I am given the opportunity to do so. My future depends on many things, not just the results, as I believe a club should choose based on work, effort and the rapport with players."
