Conte Tired of Waiting for Napoli to Make Up Their Mind

The long flirtation between Napoli and Antonio Conte might end like the other two times the team tried to hire him, last summer and in November after Rudi Garcia’s ousting, so without an agreement. The manager has decided to pull out of consideration. He’s fed up with the delays in coming to a decision, La Repubblica informed.

The Partenopei patron is having a proper casting. The former Spurs manager believes that’s unjustified. The other options don’t stack up against his resume in his mind. The parties made strides in a recent meeting. However, they didn’t come to a full understanding about his contract.

If Conte is really out of the picture, Napoli would be down to Gian Piero Gasperini, Vincenzo Italiano, Giovanni Tedesco, and Stefano Pioli. The Atalanta gaffer has been hinting at a departure to seek a new challenge. He’ll decide after the Europa League final.

The Azzurri have also had some indirect talks with Roberto De Zerbi. He surprisingly left Brighton without a surefire landing spot waiting for him. Considering the president’s MO, a late coup de theatre isn’t out of the question.

Our Take on Napoli and Conte

Considering the manager’s character, it’d be weird it took him this long to feel snubbed. Though, the root of the problem is probably simply economic and related either to his wages or the transfer market plans. They seem to be waiting for Gasperini, which would be an almost equally great hire but with less baggage and inferior demands.
