Juve deny Mazzarri contact

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has rejected claims that they have been in talks with Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri.

The latter may quit the Azzurri at the end of the season and the Old Lady are said to be keen given the uncertain future of Gigi Del Neri.

"I can categorically deny contact in any form with Mazzarri, actually we find these rumours a bit bothersome," the official said before tonight's game against Chievo.

"We have an excellent relationship with Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis and we always respect the rules.

"Del Neri? We speak with him on a daily basis," added Marotta. "We, as a club, are working for the future and we have clear ideas. At the right time we'll announce them.

"In these years Inter and Milan have played important roles, while Juve have had to deal with the psychological tsunami of Calciopoli.

"But we are starting to climb the mountain again."
