Juric: 'Genoa are with me'

Ivan Juric insists Genoa will end their slump soon after going out of the Coppa Italia in a 4-2 defeat to Lazio.

The Grifone had come back from 2-0 down to equalise by half-time, but could not replicate that in the second half.

“We’ve not done well the last three or four games, but I see no reason to suggest the team isn’t following my orders. If I did get an inkling of that, I’d be the first to step aside,” the Coach told Rai Sport.

“I wasn’t up for debate on Sunday, as we performed well even without getting points, but I know this is what my profession entails, it’s all about results. I am not thinking about it.

“I try to get the best out of the squad at my disposal and not look at excuses. It takes time to find our balance with new players and the style of football that made us so impressive in the first half of the season.

“We are losing possession a great deal now and that simply didn’t happen before. As a result, we are dealing with many more counter-attacks and it’s something that we’ve got to fix.”
