Napoli to Give Garcia Final Chances to Save His Job

Aurelio De Laurentiis and the rest of the Napoli brass are evaluating Rudi Garcia, but they are leaning toward giving the coach more opportunities to get back on track. The president asked the gaffer to repair the relationships inside the dressing room, Alfredo Pedullà informs.

The boss and his methods haven’t been well-received by the players, who often showed their frustration and disappointment. The patron demands a trifecta of victories against Hellas Verona, Union Berlin, and Milan, or he’ll probably pull the plug.

According to Sky, the Napoli hierarchy isn’t satisfied with the latest performances, how Garcia handled the subs, and the lack of empathy between the group and the gaffer. The Partenopei have been defeated by Lazio, Fiorentina, and Real Madrid, three teams that play proactive football.

At this stage, the chairman hasn’t decided to sack the coach. It may also hinge on the substitute. There have been some links and contacts with Antonio Conte in the past, who might be the only worthy candidate. The club would have to be willing to spend for him, though. Igor Tudor is a potential fallback.

Our Take on Napoli and Garcia

He was supposed to stay the course without messing with what worked brilliantly, but he has been a little too eager to put his imprint on things, with poor results. If the brass has already lost faith, as it seems, it’d be better to rip the band-aid off.
