Luciano Spalletti will lead Napoli as their new head coach from next season
Napoli has sacked Gennaro Gattuso after he failed to lead them to UEFA Champions League. Luciano Spalletti is their new head coach.
Spalletti was sacked by Inter Milan in 2019 and was replaced by Antonio Conte. Conte led Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010.
The 62 year old has returned to management for the first time after two years. “Welcome, Luciano – we’ll do great work together,” said Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis.
Luciano has a huge experience of 482 Serie A games. He won two Italian Cups and a Super Cup with Roma, in addition to two Russian league titles and a cup win in with Zenit at Saint Petersburg.
Massimiliano Allegri has also made a comeback to management for the first time after two years. Juventus resigned their former manager after sacking Andrea Pirlo on Friday.
Antonio Conte has left Inter Milan after having 2 great years at the club, ending Juventus’ 9 year title win streak.
Jose Mourinho will take charge of Roma next season. He was sacked by Tottenham in April after raising his voice against European Super League.
