Napoli boss Mazzarri remains coy over commitment

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri is non-committal over his future after clinching Champions League qualification yesterday.

Mazzarri was asked if this may have been his final game at the San Paolo, but again refused to make a clear statement.

He replied, "I really cannot answer this question until I have spoken to the club. I could lie, but I am always clear and I say that we must talk things over with the club before making any decision.

"My honesty is often inopportune for this football world and admittedly I lack something in diplomacy. Please be patient, as after the meeting with the President we will be able to make everything clear.

"I don't know when the meeting will be, as I am an employee and have to wait for the President to call me in. Once we discuss everything in a 360 degree analysis, we'll inform the media of our conclusions.

"The first time I said that I'd have to talk things over with the President was before the Parma game, when we had four consecutive victories. It is nothing new, as I do this every summer. I just wanted to talk about this celebration and the wonderful atmosphere."
