Mazzarri can break Juventus

If Walter Mazzarri manages to beat Juventus, he’ll become a Torino and Napoli hero in one fell swoop, writes Richard Hall.

Walter Mazzarri arrived in Turin, by his own admission, emotional yet motivated. He indicated that he felt the essence of what it is to be Granata and that for him this was the perfect fit.

The 56-year-old Coach has divided opinion, from Livorno to Watford and probably even before, but when it works for him, it can produce impressive and expansive football. Since his arrival, results would argue that this could be a meeting of minds, but with the Derby Della Mole on the horizon he now has the chance to cement himself into the hearts of the Toro faithful.

The 26-year-old has scored five goals in 20 appearances for Bologna so far this season.

However, he has seen his attitude questioned on more than one occasion by Rossoblu boss Roberto Donadoni, who dropped the forward to the bench for the recent defeat to Inter.

Chelsea stand by Conte... for now

Chelsea seem ready to stand by Antonio Conte for the moment, but that’s mainly because Luis Enrique turned down the job.

The Italian tactician’s position was on the brink after a series of poor results, culminating in last night’s 4-1 defeat to Watford.

It was reported Conte risked the sack, but sources close to the Stamford Bridge club state that owner Roman Abramovich has renewed his support for now.

Napoli could regret rigidity

If Juventus pip Napoli to the title, the finger will be pointed at their inability to bring in much-needed cover during the January window, warns Jack Stevens.

The January transfer window provides a fresh opportunity for squads to improve and solidify their season ambitions. Inter, for example, secured the loan of Lisandro Lopez from Benfica after being desperately in need of defensive cover.

Napoli, despite flying high at the top of the table, are in undisputed need of cover for their forward players. Despite this glaringly obvious omission, they failed to sign a single player, and considering the need for them to maintain their momentum, their incompetence in the market could ultimately see the Scudetto slip from their grasp.
