Cesena midfielder Marco Parolo insists that Coach Massimo Ficcadenti has the dressing room's backing despite a terrible run in Serie A.
The Seahorses have lost six of their last seven games in all competitions and currently lie 18th in Serie A with their next fixture being a daunting trip to Juventus.
Interviewed in Il Corriere dello Sport, Parolo said: "The group is united and compact. We are all rowing in the same direction.
"There is a unity of purpose and above all the team is with Ficcadenti.
"If things haven't gone well recently, the blame is certainly not his.
"The causes of our bad spell are to be found in other areas," he concluded.
