MILAN - Juventus boss Luigi Del Neri
runs the risk of being sacked at the end of the season after the
club's sporting director said on Tuesday the coach's future
would be discussed in May.
Juve finished a poor seventh in Serie A last term, leading
to coach Alberto Zaccheroni not having his deal extended, but
this term the faltering twice European Cup winners are in
exactly the same position.
"The club will make its decisions based on the work done by
the coach during the season. We have a two-year deal with Del
Neri and we will talk with him and consider several issues,"
Beppe Marotta told Sky Italia.
"The club does not stop, we will think things over and we
will deal with the issue of the coach at the right moment."
Marotta also said the once mighty club would soon tie up a
deal for veteran striker Alessandro del Piero to stay in Turin
for one more season and hope to complete the permanent signing
from Liverpool of on-loan midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
Juve do not want to lose goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon,
Marotta added without giving a definite guarantee the Italy
stopper would stay while interest in Manchester City's Carlos
Tevez is concrete but any deal would "not be easy."
