Aurelio De Laurentiis met Napoli players and Luciano Spalletti before this morning’s training session highlighting his disappointment with their run of bad form.
The Partenopei lost 3-2 at Empoli on Sunday, conceding three goals in the final ten minutes. The defeat on the Tuscan soil ended their title hopes and initially convinced Napoli to send the team into a training retreat.
However, the club partially changed their mind opting to reunite the team for dinner every day until Saturday.
De Laurentiis spoke to the players today, asking for an explanation for their recent disappointing results. He had also talked to Spalletti on Monday, highlighting his bitterness for some controversial statements of the Tuscan tactician over the last few weeks.
According to the report, Spalletti’s position isn’t safe, although the club won’t take any decision before the end of the season. The Tuscan tactician earns €6m gross per season and his contract expires in June 2023. Gian Piero Gasperini, Vincenzo Italiano and Roberto De Zerbi have been linked with the job at the Stadio Maradona.
