Pressure is continuing to mount on Napoli coach Rudi Garcia and reports suggest that he has four games left to turn things around with the defending champions.

The Partenopei started the season fairly well with two rudimentary wins over Frosinone and Sassuolo, but unexpectedly fell to Lazio in a 2-1 loss at home at the start of this month.

Since then, Napoli have beaten Braga in the Champions League but suffered back to back draws against Genoa and Bologna, raising doubts about Garcia’s ability to maintain a high-level at the club.

Page eight of today’s Gazzetta dello Sport details how Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis expects Garcia to turn things around at Napoli in the coming matches, concerned about the team’s slow start following last season’s Scudetto success.

The Partenopei will soon face Udinese, Lecce, Fiorentina and Real Madrid, matches that now have an extra weight for the French coach.

De Laurentiis has not started sounding out possible replacements yet but that could change in the coming weeks, with Igor Tudor and Christophe Galtier both still possibilities.

5 thought on “Clock ticking for Rudi Garcia at Napoli after poor start”
  1. how ADL hired him is mystery. never convice him at Roma and then after his roma tenure, he become worst and he went to saudi. how napoli hire a coach who no European clubs wanted is big mistake.

  2. ADL is the one to blame. He knew it would be difficult to retain scudetto without Luciano, so he hired someone with no experience handling big pressure & put the blame on the coach if things don’t work out.

  3. A D L is to blame he shouldn’t of let Luciano spalletti go till the end of his contract

  4. AdL is a big “pappone” and whoever works with him sooner or later has a problem. Garcia is a mix of arrogance and incompetence
