It seems that the separation between coach Luciano Spalletti and Napoli has been confirmed. Italian media Il Martino reported on the 23rd (Korean time) that Spalletti has decided to leave Napoli.
The information that could confirm the breakup between the two is as follows. “Coach Spalletti said goodbye to the squad just before the match against Inter Milan on the 22nd,” said Il Martino. I started to understand director T.”
Captain Di Lorenzo scored a goal in the 40th minute of the second half when the match was 1-1, leading the team to 2-1, then ran to the bench and hugged Spalletti. “This is the answer to Spalletti’s greeting,” said Il Martino.
Spalletti became a hero of Napoli by leading Napoli to their first Serie A title this season in 33 years.
However, he decided to leave the team abruptly, leaving his contract until 2024. The reason for Spalletti’s decision is clear conflict with President Aurelio De Laurentiis. It is known that Laurentis invoked the contract extension clause without consulting Spalletti. Corriele dello Sport said: “Spalletti is disappointed to have been notified in a letter from the head office that his contract has been extended until 2024.”
When asked about the future with the possibility of resigning after the match with Inter Milan, Spalletti said, “It has already been decided. (Even if someone persuades me) I don’t think the situation will change.”
According to Italian Mediaset commentator Raffaelli Auriema, there is another reason for Spalletti’s decision to leave. Auriema explained, “Spalletti made up his mind to resign on the 20th of last month. This is because President Laurentis has selected 6-7 candidates to replace Spalletti.”
Spalletti, who continued his managerial career at AS Roma, Zenit (Russia), and Inter Milan, took the baton of Napoli ahead of last season. The team, which was fifth in the 2020-21 season, led the team to third place last season to secure the right to advance to the UEFA Champions League.
Napoli have already decided on a replacement for Spalletti. Reporter Ciro Venerato, who is well versed in the Italian transfer market, informed RAI Sports of Italy on the 22nd that “President Laurentis has decided on Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasparini as the new manager.”토토사이트
