Malesani had been reportedly on the verge of dismissal last week, but earned a creditable 2-2 draw in Turin.
â€śWe have the youngest midfield in Serie A and Alexander Merkel is only 19,â€ť said Malesani.
â€śAt times he plays with a little too much arrogance, as he has to be more consistent, but he is improving.
â€śThis evening I didnâ€™t look at Juventus, but at how we were playing. I fielded all hard-working and fast players, something that I warned the President about, and in fact the team was very aggressive.
â€śWe faced Juventus with open and attacking football, so I think we made a good impression.
â€śI saw the fans were happy today and so are we. So far we have not achieved all that we deserved to this season, so if luck turns our way then we can pick up a few more points.â€ť
