Napoli: Mazzarri has contract

Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has reminded boss Walter Mazzarri that he has a contract at the club until 2013.

Mazzarri is being linked with a move away from the San Paolo outfit after refusing to commit his future to the side.

That has led to speculation that Mazzarri, who signed an extension to his previous deal in May 2010, could be on his way to Juventus.

"I have a contract and he has a contract," De Laurentiis stated on Tuesday. "We'll see what happens.

"His words have changed nothing and, as far as I am concerned, nothing has broken."

Mazzarri, who is likely to lead Napoli into the Champions League this term, placed his future in doubt on Saturday night.

"No, I will not put an end to the renewal issue, because the season has to terminate first," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"I speak the truth and don't want to be ambiguous. First of all you reach your targets, then you sit around a table and understand what the situation is.

"I did it last season as well and will do this in the summer. A Coach has to consider many things."

Should Napoli and Mazzarri part company, then Gian Piero Gasperini and Delio Rossi will be considered as his replacement in Naples.
