Ferrara escapes axe

Posted on 18/01/2010


Ciro Ferrara has once again been forgiven by the Juventus directors and will remain in charge of the team for the time being.

Following a meeting in Turin, to which involved Roberto Bettega, Jean-Claude Blanc and Alessio Secco, the Bianconeri boss was given yet more time to prove himself.

“It’s all good,” were the only words followed by a smile from the Neapolitan after the meeting.

Bettega had more to say though: “Ferrara’s smile wasn’t a bluff. He is happy because he will remain in charge.

“The Board doesn’t believe he is the problem.”

Juventus are expected to make large investments on the transfer market but guru Bettega denied any links.

“We won’t be signing any players because we are just waiting for the ones who are injured to return.

“Momo Sissoko is our first capture. Mali have been knocked out and he will be back for the Roma game.”
