Del Neri: Juve to decide my future

Gigi Del Neri is no longer 100 per cent sure that he will remain as Juventus boss. "You'll have to ask the club," he said after the 2-2 with Chievo.

The tactician stated on Sunday that he would be staying in Turin, but another crazy draw may well have brought his brief Turin stint to an end.

"My future? You'll have to ask the club," he admitted. "We'll start again now from the good things we have shown."

For the third time in recent games, Juventus threw away a two-goal advantage in ties [against Cesena, Catania and Chievo] that eventually ended in a draw.

"We don't have the maturity, the calmness and balance needed to win these types of games," he commented.

"We weren't focused in the two goals we conceded, then we were penalised by a few situations that could have gone differently.

"The side played well by creating many chances against a Chievo team who were quick on the break. Not counting the two goals they scored, they just created one more chance.

"Towards the end of the game it was only obvious that we would give them a few opportunities on the counter as we wanted to score.

"We hit the post twice and were punished with their equaliser after some fine work from Sergio Pellissier."

Juventus remain in seventh, four points behind Lazio and Roma, five behind Udinese who are in the last Champions League spot.

Juve play Parma next before entertaining Napoli.
