Napoli has had a historic season and will ideally want to build on it, or at least emulate it. But there’s a catch. In addition to the interest in its stars, coach Luciano Spalletti is on his way out. Who will replace him? There is speculation about a big coaching ace.
The Partenopei haven’t even managed to recover properly from celebrating the third title in the club’s history and already have to deal with unpleasant worries. There is a lot of interest in stars like Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Besides, Napoli will have to deal with the departure of their coach. Luciano Spalletti is leaving the team at his own request. He spent two seasons at the club. He made history by winning the title and no one will blame him.
But what’s next? The club’s owner Aurelio De Laurentiis intends to continue to have big ambitions and would like to bring in another big name as coach. In the past, he has brought in Carlo Ancelotti and Rafa Benítez in addition to Spalletti.
Recently, several names have been speculated. Laurentiis himself was said to want to bring in Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona and Spanish national team coach. However, this move did not work out, according to Marco Conterio.
Napoli are still supposed to be in contact with Thiago Motta, who leads Bologna, and Vincenzo Italiano, who is not doing badly at all at Fiorentina. But there is another ace in the game. The former Bayern Munich coach.
Julian Nagelsmann is one of the most talented coaches today. He already showed potential at Hoffenheim and confirmed it at the helm of Leipzig and Bayern. It was in Munich that both players and fans were satisfied with him. His unexpected end came as a shock and caused a wave of criticism not only from the fans.
Among others, English side Totttenham were interested in Nagelsmann and Chelsea were also in talks. But Naples could be a much more attractive and interesting challenge for him. Could he follow Spalletti’s example and win the title in a big competition with richer teams?
If he has the heart of a football romantic, he will certainly think about the offer. He has already met the Naples owner twice. The first meeting was to discuss the details of the exit clause he has in his contract with Bayern.
