Napoli coach Francesco Calzona tried to explain the club’s “catastrophe”, admitting that he had probably “underestimated the situation” in the Campania capital.

The Partenopei were once again disappointed with their Serie A outing on Friday night, dropping points in a tense 2-2 draw with Fiorentina, a result that leaves them ninth in the league table with a game in hand. Calzona took over as Napoli’s interim coach in February, retaining his role with the Slovak national team while trying to help the Partenopei. Speaking at a press conference via TMW after Napoli’s 2-2 draw with Fiorentina, Calzona began by discussing what he’ll be leaving behind at the club following his departure at the end of the campaign.

“I won’t go into details, the club needs to know, I don’t give advice. I was called in to improve the situation and I wasn’t able to do it, I take responsibility for that. Obviously, I didn’t make an impact and I’m sorry, but Napoli’s season had started seven and a half months earlier. And I say this as a Napoli fan, after a week the controversy started. My management kept the team in the same position, and I take responsibility. I shouldn’t be the only one. I didn’t expect all these problems, of course, I didn’t expect a catastrophe not only on the field, but in general. I didn’t just have to think about training, as that would be my job, but a lot of other things and nobody told me anything about it. Maybe I underestimated the situation because I didn’t know about it,” said Francesco Calzona.
