Juventus GM Blanc backs Ranieri

Ahead of tonight's big match against Inter Milan, Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has received a vote of confidence from general manager Jean-Claude Blanc.

"Ranieri is not under discussion," Blanc told Sky Italia television. "I took the responsibility of choosing him for this side, so he will be the Juventus tactician for at least the next two years.

"We can understand that some people have a vested interest in planting the seeds of doubt, but he knows there is faith in him, not just from me, but from the whole Board of Directors."
