Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso said he is uncertain whether the Juventus match will be his last chance to save the job. ‘You have to ask the club’.
The coach admitted, after the Coppa Italia exit against Atalanta on Wednesday, his men suffered in the first half but was delighted with the Azzurri players’ enthusiasm in the second.
It ended at the Gewiss Stadium with a 3-1 loss and the next match is in Serie A against Juventus.
It could be a decisive appointment for the former Milan coach, reports in Italy say, but Gattuso stressed that he does not think of the Cup game as the ‘penultimate’ in charge of the Partenopei.
“I don’t know, you have to ask the club,” he said according to the Daily Mail. “The captain of the ship is me, when things go badly, they are at the expense of the captain.”
“I can’t think of this as the penultimate or last resort, I have to work and I have to be able to trust.”
“I’m a coach, it’s like that. I won’t be the first, nor the last, but I have the duty to try until the end.”
