SPAL say Coach Leonardo Semplici will inform the club of the decision he has taken over his future in ‘a few days’.
Semplici has been linked with jobs at several Serie A sides after leading SPAL to a third straight campaign in the top flight.
“Yesterday we took stock of the situation with Leonardo and the club,” sporting director Davide Vagnati told Estente.com.
“We reiterated our intention to continue together and eventually extend the contract of the Coach, who expressed a willingness to leave it for a few days and then get back to us next week.”
President Walter Mattioli added: “For me, he’ll want to reflect on some personal issues. We’ve already talked about preseason.
“For me, wanting to wait is more of a fashion thing. However, if a big club comes in then there would be little to say.”
