‘No Benitez future questions’

Napoli have said in a statement that tomorrow’s Press conference will only cover issues concerning the club and not the future of Coach Rafa Benitez.

The Spaniard is widely expected to take the Real Madrid job after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by the Merengues on Monday.

Napoli continued with the speculation by yesterday announcing that President Aurelio De Laurentiis would face the media on Thursday, with Benitez sitting alongside him.

However, there will be no announcement about the Coach tomorrow, as a further club statement has confirmed today.

“The club clarifies that tomorrow’s press conference will only cover issues concerning Napoli and not the future of Benitez,” reads today’s release.

“Napoli underline that the Press conference scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday May 28 at 13:00 in the technical centre at Castel Volturno, with the President Aurelio De Laurentiis and the Coach Rafa Benitez, will only cover relevant issues and not the future of Benitez.

“Therefore, any questions about the future of the Coach will not be accepted.”
