Luciano Spalletti casts further mystery over Napoli future

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has cast further mystery over his future at the club, as he has made some comments about whether he would stay at the Partenopei or not.

It has already been reported that Spalletti wants to leave the club and he has rejected a contract offer from the Partenopei, with Corriere dello Sport stating earlier today that the dinner meeting involving the manager and Aurelio de Laurentiis last week had the Napoli boss clarifying that he wants to leave the club.

There was an expectation that during his press conference ahead of the Inter game tomorrow, Spalletti would clarify his stance about his future. But the Italian has added further mystery.

When asked about his contract situation, he said: “You have to ask the president. I defined everything at dinner a week ago. The club has to say this, I’m not saying it.”

He was also asked about De Laurentiis’ comments yesterday about how he does not want to clip anyone’s wings, referring indirectly to Spalletti. The Napoli boss said:

“I don’t know what that means, you have to ask the president. That’s why what I want to do doesn’t take a pair of wings, it takes a pair of boots, I don’t have to fly anywhere.”

Spalletti later reiterated that he has already informed the club about his decision and the club should inform the fans, saying: 

“It’s wrong to bring up the fans, it’s a club thing, we said it there that evening.”
