Despite the Partenopei’s poor run of form since the appointment of Walter Mazzarri as interim coach for the remainder of the season following the sacking of Rudi Garcia, Napoli CEO Aurelio De Laurentiis reveals that he is not searching for a new gaffer at the moment.
After making his return to the Azzurri for this time since 2013, Mazzarri has endured seven losses and two draws in his first 15 games across all competitions. Moreover, Napoli have been extremely vulnerable in the back as they have conceded a total of 22 goals since Mazzarri was handed a seven-month contract.
Napoli are currently out of the Coppa Italia after having been himuliated in a 4-0 defeat within their home-stomping ground against Frosinone.
Furthermore, the Partenopei currently find themselves in seventh place in the league standings with a total of 35 points, five points adrift from fourth-placed Atalanta.
Last year’s scudetto champions have struggled heavily against the big six under Mazzarri, having lost to Inter, Juventus, and Roma, as well as having been forced to a score-less stalemate against Atalanta.
In addition, Napoli have dropped shocking points against several minnows of the league such as Torino and Monza.
As relayed by CalcioNapoli1926, De Laurentiis opened up about the future of Walter Mazzarri, hinting that he will most likely remain in the dugout for at least until the end of this year’s 2023/24 campaign:
“He is a family friend. He understood that when he signed for Inter, he made a mistake. I deeply love Naples, I would like to leave Rome to move here. Where is such a place located? I love Los Angeles, but it’s a different story and sometimes it’s good. But how can you think of having the time available to visit Naples and Campania. It will be what it will be for Mazzarri’s future, for now I’m not looking for any coach.”
