Jean-Claude Blanc: Ciro Ferrara Will Remain Juventus Coach

The Bianconeri supremo says that the coach's position is not under threat, despite what the newspapers believe...
Juventus have lost two matches in a row following defeats to Bordeaux and Cagliari, dampening their Champions League and Scudetto hopes this season.

The Bianconeri are now eight points behind league-leading Inter, who they play next weekend, while the loss to Bordeaux has resulted in a showdown with Bayern Munich in Group A of the Champions League and a defeat will send them out of the competition.

However, whether the results are positive or negative against Inter and Bayern, president Jean-Claude Blanc insists that coach Ciro Ferrara will remain at the helm.

"The outcome of the next two games will not change anything, we move ahead with our project," he told Il Corriere dello Sport.

"The lads are very angry right now and from this fighting spirit can come great things."

A subplot to the clash with the Nerazzurri has been the racist chants towards Inter starlet Mario Balotelli, but the club patron is hopeful that it will not be a problem on Saturday.

"We will be challenging on the field with the spirit of fair play. The chants? It is a general problem, it happens everywhere and needs to be resolved quickly," he concluded.
