Report: Gattuso considers staying at Napoli

Gennaro Gattuso is reportedly re-evaluating his position at Napoli, thanks to the affection of his players and the trust of the sporting director.

Il Mattino reports Gattuso could eventually change his mind and the icy front that separates him from President Aurelio De Laurentiis seems to gradually thaw.

Tiemoue Bakayoko and Victor Osimhen secured a 2-0 win over Torino on Monday and Napoli are currently involved in a wide-open battle for the Champions League next term.

The newspaper claims the sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has shown Gattuso support throughout the season and the former Milan coach is happy with the affection shown by his players at Castel Volturno.

The tactician would, according to the report, be ready to listen to De Laurentiis, should propose a renewal of the current contract.

It’s not a complete turnaround yet, but rather an opening, and the success on the pitch in recent weeks makes the patron consider negotiating with the Calabrian coach.

Napoli are currently tied on points with Milan and Juventus ahead of the last five games, and two points behind second-placed Atalanta ahead of a thrilling run-in.
