Spalletti set to leave Napoli

Shock departure in store for Napoli after historic Scudetto-winning season

May 24, 2023 By Michelle Bonsu
Despite guiding the Partenopei to their first Scudetto in over three decades, Luciano Spalletti is set to depart the Southern Italian club at the end of this season.

Considering that Napoli have just won their first Scudetto in 33 years, one would expect the Partenopei to be fighting tooth and nail to hang on to their manager.

However, reports have been swirling that Luciano Spalletti has been at loggerheads with the flamboyant and outspoken owner of Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis. Spalletti confirmed Napoli fans' worst fears over the weekend during a press conference following his team's win over a high-flying Nerazzurri side who had strung together an eight-match winning streak in Serie A prior to Sunday's loss.

That means that Napoli will need to find a new manager for next season as they aim to not only successfully defend their Scudetto crown, but also make another deep run in the Champions League. The Partenopei have been linked with a slew of options, including Antonio Conte and Rafa Benitez, both of whom have extensive experience managing in Serie A during their times with Juventus and Inter (Conte) and Benitez (Napoli), as well as Atalanta's Gian Piero Gasperini, Fiorentina's Vincenzo Italiano, and treble-winning manager Luis Enrique, who also managed Roma at one point in his career.

While it is not certain if any of these managers will be on the tactician's bench at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona come next season, it is nonetheless a pretty surefire guarantee that Napoli will have a new man in charge to once again challenge for trophies once the 2023/2024 campaign rolls around.
