Following the loss to Lazio, Napoli had another disappointing display versus Genoa, coming away with a point after going down two-nil only thanks to a late surge. Rudi Garcia is searching for answers for their recent performances. He needs to ignite the squad in the upcoming stretch to avoid being on the hot seat, Il Mattino informs.

The coach believes it’s a matter of motivations. Moreover, it doesn’t look like he and the players have yet hit it off and gotten used to each other. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who hasn’t scored since last March, was pictured visibly questioning his late substitution on Saturday.

While it’s too early to call it a crisis, president Aurelio De Laurentiis surely isn’t happy with how things have turned out so far. The next two games versus Sporting Braga and Bologna are already pivotal. However, rather than with Garcia, the chairman is disappointed with the performances of some players.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport (via OneFootball), further missteps would quickly put Garcia on shaky ground. The patron has stressed the importance of going far in the Champions League. It’s the most profitable competition for the club.

Our Take on Napoli and Garcia

While the dud versus Lazio was somewhat justifiable considering the opponents, the one versus Genoa was tough to comprehend. The gaffer has seemed overeager to put his stamp on their tactics rather than staying the course.
