Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri says he doesn't feel his head is "on the chopping block" despite his side's poor run of seven games without a win.
Speaking Saturday on the eve of Inter's visit to Napoli he insisted: "I know that I've got the confidence of the club behind me.
"I speak frequently with the president (Massimo) Moratti, he's remaining calm. He too was pleased by our performance against Marseille (a last minute 1-0 defeat in Wednesday's Champions League last 16 first leg in France).
"But he wants a reaction and we're going to give it to him."
Ranieri added: "The team pleased me a lot at the Velodrome, we produced a big match, even the French papers were saying that it was robbery."
Napoli though will prove a tough place for Inter to try and pick themselves up after six defeats and one draw as the hosts have notched up three straight wins, the latest Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League success over Chelsea.
"We're only one point behind Napoli in the standings, but their morale is high. We have to regain our path," the former Chelsea boss commented.
Inter go into Sunday's game lying in seventh place in Serie A on 37 points, 12 off leaders AC Milan.
