Genoa president Preziosi: Del Neri will stay

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi says coach Gigi del Neri is safe.

Sunday night saw furious protests outside the Stadio Luigi Ferraris as Genoa suffered a 3-1 derby defeat to Sampdoria.

Preziosi told La Repubblica: "The coach will remain this year and the next. As long as I'm with Genoa I can guarantee that because I'm sure I've found a very good coach. I will give him all the time he needs.

"Unfortunately we have lost six games in a row, I hope it's not seven, but the coach will keep his job whatever happens.

"Protests are fine as long as they're civilised, and I accept the insults as I probably deserve them."
