Napoli Not Really Considering a Coaching Change Yet

Napoli have had an underwhelming start, and Rudi Garcia is facing plenty of criticism, but they aren’t seriously contemplating axing the manager at this stage. The new boss hasn’t gelled with his players.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the French manager isn’t on the hot seat currently. President Aurelio De Laurentiis would pull the plug only if things really went south. He’ll give the gaffer at least the next four games to turn things around.

The pool of options to potentially replace Garcia on the Napoli bench isn’t large, but there are some high-end options. For instance, Antonio Conte, who’s available after leaving Tottenham. However, there are some problems that come with potentially hiring him.

Igor Tudor would be among the candidates should there be a vacancy. He had a good season at Olympique Marseille, even though things ended on a bitter note. Per RMC Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), the patron reached out to Christophe Galtier to test the waters.

Our Take on Napoli and Garcia

The disagreements with the players are more worrying than their displays on the pitch, but things intertwine. The squad also needs to recalibrate some things and can’t expect him to be a replica of Luciano Spalletti, whose impact was apparently even larger than imagined. The tactician has the president’s stubbornness on his side. He won’t admit to having made a wrong choice until it really risks compromising their season.
