Claudio Ranieri has come out and declared that he is not in danger of being sacked. He has also stated that star midfielder Wesley Sneijder is happy at the club, in an attempt to quell rumours of interest from abroad in the Dutch playmaker (for what seems to be the 100th time). “Could he be on his way to Anzhi?

With 41 points from the first 19 matches of the Serie A season, Juventus finds itself with the symbolic label of ‘winter champions’ for the first time in six long years.
