If Mazzarri and Cavani ask to leave…

Napoli are ready to wave goodbye to Walter Mazzarri and Edinson Cavani if the duo ask to leave the club.

Mazzarri has admitted that he won’t consider his future until the end of the season, while the striker has a €63m release clause in his contract.

“Mazzarri has my faith and there is no need for a change of Coach,” President Aurelio De Laurentiis commented.

“However, if he tells me that his work with Napoli is done and there is no reason to remain then we’ll make our considerations.

“Mazzarri is a serious professional. He’ll make his considerations and at the end of the campaign we’ll decide what is best for Napoli.”

The movie mogul was also questioned on star striker Cavani, a player who is wanted by Europe’s top clubs.

“We have an extraordinary relationship,” the San Paolo chief added. “If he can convince me that his time here is over then we’ll talk, otherwise he’ll stay as he has a five-year contract.”
