Udinese owner Giampaolo Pozzo has handed a vote of confidence to coach Francesco Guidolin.

Zebrette have won one of their last five Serie A games and were knocked out of the Europa League in August.

"Guidolin deserves faith. He and his staff are working in a good way despite the difficult beginning to the season," Pozzo told SportUno.

"They have our faith not because they are good people, but because they are good coaches.

"The current situation is not sparkling, but we must evaluate the fixtures and the injuries.

"I'm convinced that we will recover because the team is good and have good motivations."
