Failure against Milan could mean end of road for Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri...

Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri's time at the club could be curtailed if they lose to Milan on Saturday.

La Repubblica claims the clash at the Olimpico could be his last chance to prove he has what it takes to mount a revival from now until the end of term after the weekend loss against Bologna.

Critics have called for Del Neri to resign from his post, but club president Andrea Agnelli is waiting to see the outcome against Milan. Anything less than a win could see the former Sampdoria coach depart.

Former midfielder Pavel Nedved, currently working as an advisor at the club, is being tipped to take over from Del Neri and act as an interim leader until the end of the season.

Marcello Lippi, out of work since World Cup 2010 after leaving his Italy post, is also being linked to return to the club as a ferryman who can take the team forward until the club revises plans in the summer.

Juve currently lie in seventh place in Serie A, a full seven points behind the Champions League play-off spot with only 11 games left to play.
