Corsi: ‘Giampaolo renewal shortly’

Empoli President Fabrizio Corsi says ‘renewal talks will happen shortly’ for Coach Marco Giampaolo.

The tactician has been one of the surprise successes of the season, continuing the good work of his predecessor Maurizio Sarri by taking the club to mid-table safety.

Empoli defeated Tuscan rivals Fiorentina 2-0 on Sunday and Giampaolo has been linked with a move to La Viola if Paulo Sousa leaves.

The 48-year-old’s current deal expires on 30 June, but Corsi assured fans that he will be offered an extension shortly.

“As soon as the conditions are right we will talk about a renewal, we will face it shortly,” Corsi told Corriere dello Sport.

“We’re happy for him and for certain players, but these last six matches count for a lot.

“We must honour the season, each position more or less has great value.”
