Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri is surprised to learn he is the only manager in Serie A on a long-term deal.

Mazzarri was surprised to find out that he is the only Coach in Serie A to have a three-year contract.

He said: “I didn't even know of this little curiosity. It has never happen to me before now. I say it with modesty. I have never had the opportunity.

“I used to like going forward with a two-year deal at best, but I feel loved here, I feel the fascination of the city and the club's history. I feel responsible.

“In the South, football is social revenge and these challenges make me enthusiastic.”
