Juventus coach Ferrara will not resign

Ciro Ferrara will not resign after seeing Juventus defeated by Chievo Verona yesterday.

The Bianconeri plummeted out of the top three after today's 1-0 defeat at Chievo and many wonder how long he'll continue to stay on the bench.

"I try to analyse the situation and every aspect of it. The lads are downhearted when the results do not arrive, that is only to be expected," Ferrara told Sky Italia television.

"I cannot know how our directors evaluate the squad, Coach and club. Everyone needs to examine every option and if they consider the Coach to be the problem, then I'm sure they'll come and tell me.

"There have been talks of course over the season, but no, I have never directly been told that I am a problem.

"To anyone who is used to seeing Juventus win, of course it will seem very strange. I am convinced the team has quality and must find out why at the moment they cannot express those qualities.

"If the problem is the Coach who cannot get the best out of his players, then I would clearly try to take responsibility for my errors. The club will evaluate and make a judgement.

"I'm trying to find the solution, it's true that seven defeats are unusual for Juventus, but with the players at my disposal I aim to improve and give them more self-belief."
