Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero insists he and his team-mates will stand by coach Claudio Ranieri amid rumours the former Chelsea tactician´s future at the club is uncertain.

A late goal by Vincenzo Iaquinta gave the Bianconeri a 1-0 victory over Napoli on Sunday to ensure Juve remain in third position in the Serie A standings with 10 games remaining.

"The coach is doing a fantastic job," said Del Piero. "The numbers say so but that´s one thing - what the club will decide in the future is another. He must be calm. He has all of our support."
