Sergio Buso Reveals Napoli Were Already Thinking About Hiring Walter Mazzarri Whilst Roberto Donadoni Was In Charge

Sergio Buso has told reporters the Azzurri directors were already thinking of Walter Mazzarri whilst Roberto Donadoni was still in charge.
Former Napoli assistant coach Sergio Buso has revealed that the Partenopei directors were already thinking about Walter Mazzarri as a possible replacement for Roberto Donadoni whilst he was still in charge of the side.

Donadoni was sacked early last season after a poor start, and replaced by Mazzarri. The former Sampdoria and Reggina coach took the Azzurri to a sixth-place finish.

"We started last season with the Sword of Damocles over our head," Buso told "All you need to do is speak to [former Napoli director Pierpaolo] Marino.

"He will reveal it all as he is aware of everything that happened. The club was already thinking about Mazzarri prior to the season starting."

Buso says it is too early to be judging the side after only two matches into the season, having only earnt two points.

"I don't think it is a conditioning problem on the part of the players. It is too early to say where the problem may lie," he concluded.
