Roberto Bettega, the Juventus Vice Director General, has said that despite their dismal run of form, Juventus never considered sacking coach Ciro Ferrara.

The Old Lady have lost six of their last eight outings and speculation over the coach’s future has been dominating the back pages of the Italian newspapers.

But Bettaga has moved to quash rumours of Ferrara’s job being on the line, and says the club must concentrate on securing Champions League qualification.

“We’ll carry on with our project and doubts on the coach’s work were coming from elsewhere rather than from us,” said Bettaga.

“We have been chasing after our tenth [Coppa Italia] for so many years and we will give it a shot this season too.

“The team reacted well in a difficult moment. I think it was a deserved victory. We got is as a team and that’s what we want, both in defeats and in victories.”

Juventus defeated Napoli 3-0 in their Coppa Italia encounter on Wednesday night to set up a quarter-final tie with Inter Milan, and Bettaga hinted that Juve could move to recruit some new faces during the January transfer window.

“Champions League qualification, Coppa Italia and Europa League, we have plenty of objectives and must look ahead,” he continued.

“We will certainly do something in the market, but the most important thing is to get the injured players back up and running.”
