Juve to stand by Ferrara

20 Dec 2009 - 17:32:48

Juventus head coach Ciro Ferrara has vowed to remain strong after seeing his side lose five of their last six games in all competitions.

A 2-1 Serie A reverse at home to Catania was Juve's latest setback, but Ferrara is convinced that things can turn around quickly.

He said after the league loss on Sunday: "We cannot deny the results haven't been up to the standard of this club and we're going through a tough time.

"It's a period when things keep going wrong for us, we're in the thick of the storm, but if we remain united I think we can get out of here. I like sailing and will not abandon the ship.

"It's not just one problem, it's a series of things coming together in the last three months. We had done very well at the start.

"We know we're not doing well, but I don't think you can blame just one element."

Meanwhile, Juve have dismissed rumours suggesting that they are lining up Guus Hiddink to replace the under-pressure Ferrara.

A club statement read: "Juventus deny reports coming from England of a possible interest for Guus Hiddink.

"The club has never considered any other coach because Ciro Ferrara has our full backing and is at the centre of our sporting project."
