Torino coach granted vote of confidence

Torino president Urbano Cairo has given coach Giovanni de Biasi a vote of confidence despite his team´s poor results.

Sunday´s 1-0 defeat against Cagliari marked the Granata´s third successive loss and relegated Toro to 17th position in the standings, just one point clear of the drop zone.

"I have confidence in De Biasi," said Cairo. "We will reason together in order to see where we can improve.

"I will not change the coach because it´s a mistake to make fast assumptions.

"We are just at the beginning of the campaign and luck has not been on our side. We must be calm and work hard."

The Granata outfit won 3-0 against Lecce in their Serie A opener on August 31 but have collected just two points since then.

Toro must show a drastic improvement if they wish to beat Juventus in the Turin derby next weekend.
