Juventus GM Beppe Marotta insists coach Gigi del Neri is not about to be shown the door. Del Neri has now overseen three consecutive defeats and Juve may struggle to finish in the European places this season.
Marotta insisted: "The blame should be divided between the coach, the players and the club, so Del Neri will be confirmed and we will carry on with him in the future.
"We must give greater peace of mind to this group because next season we will add more quality players and experience to this squad, which is the base from which to start.
"We knew it would be a difficult year, but did not think it would be so hard . Now we must bring peace into the environment."
