“It’s a 4-4-2 today with Ledian Memushaj on the right and Danilo Cataldi in the centre,” the director of sport told Mediaset Premium.

“We are absolutely convinced that we can get a result against Roma today. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say we are absolutely convinced that we will get a good result.”

Following four consecutive defeats in their first ever top flight season, there were reports Coach Baroni could be dismissed.

“We transformed the squad in August, bringing in youngsters with great prospects and some who already had Serie A experience.

“The performances against Bologna, Torino and Sampdoria were very positive indeed, so the trip to Napoli was by no means representative of the campaign so far.

“The club has absolute faith in the Coach.”
