Zenga gets vote of confidence at Catania

February 10, 2009

Catania have given coach Walter Zenga a vote of confidence despite his team's failure to win this year.

Sunday's 2-1 defeat against Juventus was the Sicilians' fifth in six games.

"Zenga is and will remain the coach of Catania until the end of the season," said club administrator Pietro Lo Monaco. "It is better to be clear in order to avoid certain rumours circulating."

Catania have collected just one point of a possible 18 in 2009.

They go into this weekend's game at Chievo in 14th, seven points clear of the relegation zone.
