Mazzarri: I wanted to resign

The fallout from the Italian Super Cup has continued with Napoli's Walter Mazzarri revealing he almost quit his job after the defeat to Juventus which saw Goran Pandev, Juan Zuniga and the coach himself all sent off.

The three red cards all came towards the end of normal time with the score level at 2-2 but thanks to their two man advantage the Bianconeri ran out comfortable 4-2 winners in extra time.

Napoli boycotted the presentation of the trophy in protest, leading to two-match Serie A bans for Pandev and Andrea Dossena, while Mazzarri and Zuniga have been suspended for one game each.

Mazzarri backed that stance in Saturday's press conference, telling reporters; "I'd love to have seen what others would've done in our place, if they had suffered what we did during and after the game. I hope the Disciplinary Commission accepts our appeals but from what the referee wrote in his report they added insult to injury.

"We were right not to attend the ceremony. What would've happened if we had faced the referees at the end of the game, after the decisions they made? I think Napoli made the right choice.

"There was a moment when I wanted to resign, and not in the heat of the moment either. Valon Behrami was pushed for a blatant penalty that Rizzoli didn't see. Interpretations of the rules can happen, but we cannot accept that the rules are applied in two different ways. We are indignant - not with the opponents, but with these aspects.

"I am still here because I still have the desire to fight and to try to win in the right way. I hope this game can serve us all well for the future, as we have to be careful on certain dangerous parameters. We are at the highest level here and a mistake must be paid for.

"I am appealing my ban because the report says the fourth official heard what I said and decided for the red card. However, it was the linesman who called the referee over and got me sent off. There are massive errors in the paperwork and, of course, during the game the decisions were only ever against us."

Mazzarri also had a message for Massimo Carrera, who was acting as Juventus coach following the suspension of Antonio Conte, after the Juve man claimed Napoli's tough tackling tactics were almost a 'a man-hunt.'

"He invented all of it and must've seen a different game. Juventus committed many tackles worthy of a yellow card that weren't given," Mazzarri told the media.

"From the first to the final minute, there was an unequal approach against Napoli. We will go to Palermo to play for the win, despite the bans. I am confident, as we would've probably beaten Juventus had it not been for the refereeing decisions ... In any case, Napoli will have a great campaign."

It seems the matter is far from over with Juventus midfielder Simone Pepe tweeting "Don't be bitter, it's the taking part that counts!" immediately after Mazzarri's press conference.
