Rafa Benitez refuses to comment on his future, but it’s reported Napoli could pull the plug on him anyway.
His contract expires in June and the Coach repeatedly ignored questions on whether he’ll stay next season.
According to Il Mattino newspaper, the decision won’t be down to Benitez any more, as President Aurelio De Laurentiis is looking elsewhere.
The patron is reportedly furious at the recent downturn in form, which has seen Napoli drop down to sixth place in the Serie A standings after a 1-0 defeat to Roma.
Now their best chance of qualifying for the Champions League will be to win the Europa League trophy.
Benitez’s squad rotation approach has often irritated the fans, media and President.
It looks as if Napoli might not even offer a contract renewal for Benitez to consider.
