Napoli coach Sarri unsure about staying

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is unsure about staying next season.

After victory over Crotone, Sarri conceded there'd been no progress over new contract talks.

“The season finished 20 minutes ago," Sarri said. “The truth is as Insigne put it – even I don't know what I will do.

“After the match in Florence, when it became clear we wouldn't win the League, we gave ourselves this new target of the points record.

“Right now I am hungry. Tomorrow I will talk to my family before anyone else. That's what is right at this moment."

Sarri acknowledged that he will quickly need to signal his intentions to De Laurentiis.

“The President needs a response quickly. We are at the end of the season and he needs to plan.

“I understand that he needs an answer.

“My only confusion is that in life everything comes to an end. It's the truth and sometimes it's better to finish stories while they are good.

“When I arrived, the team had finished 24 points off the top. Now, we are four points behind.

“We have not reached the target, but the journey has been fantastic.

“I need to thank the crowd. Regardless of what I am doing next year, they will always have a place in my heart."
