Del Neri: 'No intention of resigning'

“I have no intention of resigning,” announced Gigi Del Neri after another Juventus embarrassment.

Fans hurled abuse from the Stadio Olimpico stands after last night's 2-0 loss to Bologna, which followed on from last week's defeat at Lecce.

“A while back the President said he had faith in me and he has reaffirmed that,” assured the Coach.

“We are all responsible for this situation, me first of all, but I have no intention of resigning.”

The Bianconeri supporters are eager for a change on the bench and are calling for former player Antonio Conte to be considered.

“That is just love for their old playing idol, but at the moment we have to suffer together to get out of this situation.

“Juve are a very fragile side at the moment. As soon as something negative happens in the match, they no longer have the courage to get back on their feet.”

The newspapers are already looking to next season with options like current Zenit boss Luciano Spalletti, former Italy and Juventus Coach Marcello Lippi and ex-Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli.
