Sarri: 'Napoli president can fire me'

Manager Maurizio Sarri says that the Napoli president Aurelio Di Laurentiis can sack him if he is not happy with the club's failure to win Serie A.

Maurizio Sarri has acknowledged that he could be replaced as manager of Napoli in the summer.

Sunday's 2-2 draw with Torino has left Juventus on the brink of claiming the Serie A title, and the future of Sarri is now uncertain with Chelsea allegedly considering paying the 59-year-old's release clause.

However, Sarri has admitted that president Aurelio Di Laurentiis could potentially act before making a decision on his own future.

After the weekend's game, Sarri told reporters: "If the president is happy, good, if he is not happy, I'm sorry, and he can always take to the exit option he has. If he calls me, I will calmly talk about it. I've always tried to do my best for the team and if I have to leave, it's not for what the president has said.

"There is a contract that has a clause worth €8m (£7m). We have 11 days to evaluate the situation and that is more than enough time. If the era is over, that's down to the club. If the club cannot keep hold of six or seven of these players, then clearly an era is over."

Napoli have been linked with both Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and former Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti.
