Napoli hit rock-bottom on Sunday, as Torino trashed them three-nil away. The Partenopei didn’t right the ship after firing Rudi Garcia and appointing Walter Mazzarri. The returning coach has fared worse result-wise.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, a new coaching change doesn’t appear in the cards at this stage. The French gaffer surely won’t be back on the bench. Director Mauro Meluso confirmed as much after the romp to DAZN (via TuttoSport).
“We had a small meeting with the boss and talked to the team. We apologize to our people for this game. We’re very sorry because we were unrecognizable. Mazzarri has our full trust, and there are no ongoing reflections about him. We need to go back to a normalcy that isn’t there now because of injuries and players leaving for AFCON.”
Napoli have collected just seven points in as many rounds with the Tuscan gaffer at the helm. They advanced in the Champions League but were embarrassed by Frosinone in the Coppa Italia. The tactician stated to Mediaset that he wasn’t mulling resigning. Antonio Conte, who lives in Turin and is their top target for the future, was in the stands on Sunday.
Our Take on Napoli and Mazzarri
He had to deal with all sorts of problems, but there was a reason why he hadn’t coached at a high level in a few years. Still, the error was hiring somebody who seemed a lot like a caretaker manager, undermining him from the get-go.
