Siena coach Andrea Mandorlini has hit out at the media over speculation about his future.

"Since the opening day of the season I have been viewed in a certain way and it has annoyed me quite a bit," said Mandorlini.

"It's hardly as if anybody expected us to get into the Champions League. We knew it would be a struggle this term, that's not a surprise.

"When I talk to the Press it's because I want to talk directly to the fans - you journalists don't ever help."
