Nando Orsi is confident of keeping his job at Livorno.

Livorno have lost their opening two games of the season, but coach Orsi says: "Against Juventus we were only losing 2-0 at 87 minutes.

"In the Palermo game we had a really poor first half, but the second half was much better.

"I'm convinced that we can do better as we have a big and talented squad. Nobody here expected to conceded nine goals in two games and even if I am the weak link, I can improve.

"Everyone needs time, even Inter and Milan, and I really believe that I will be on the Livorno bench for the whole year and that we will achieve safety early and easily."
