Siena president Giovanni Lombardi Stronati insists coach Andrea Mandorlini's job is safe.

After their 1-1 draw with Catania, Stronati said: "It's regrettable that there were lots of protests before the game, but I appreciated the support from most of the fans at the final whistle.

"When Catania scored and at the end there was applause from most of the ground.

"It is good to have a crowd that understands the effort that the team have put in."
