Despite doing well in the UEFA Youth League, the latest results in the Lega Primavera TIM are not satisfactory to the Napoli management. According to the Cronaca di Napoli newspaper, last week there was an animated discussion between Giampaolo Saurini and the sports director Cristiano Giuntoli. It was reported that Giuntoli believed the coach could have done better in deploying training and improving some coaching decisions during games which caused confusion amongst the staff.
Saurini is currently under contract until 2018, but is under risk of losing his position in Naples. The ultimate decision will come after the Azzurrini’s matchup against Lazio on October 14th. Giuntoli has already spoke to former Napoli veterans Gianluca Grava and Salvatore Aronica as potential replacements.
