Agent: Maggio staying at Napoli

Christian Maggio’s agent says his client will be remaining at Napoli, despite rumours he may move elsewhere.

The experienced defender has only one year left on his current contract at San Paolo, prompting speculation he will leave the club this summer.

However, despite reports linking him with Verona, Massimo Briaschi insists Maggio will still be a Partenopei player come the start of the new season.

“I don’t know who is putting these rumours in motion,” he told reporters. “Anyone talking about the possible sale of Maggio is just inventing things.

“Maggio has a contract that expires in 2015 and he will stay at Napoli. There is no doubt about that.

“I repeat, he has a contract that expires in 2015, for us he will remain at Napoli. It’s not a question of whether he will renew or not, he has a contract and he will respect it.”
