Spalletti Announces Napoli Exit After Making History

Luciano Spalletti has announced that he will leave Napoli at the end of the Serie A season after winning their first league title since the days of Diego Maradona.

Speaking at an event at the Italian national team’s Coverciano training centre, Coach Spalletti said he will take time away from football and will not be immediately moving to coach another team.

The 64-year-old guided Napoli to their third Scudetto — their first since 1990 — with five matches to play after what has been described as a magical campaign.

Napoli’s title triumph was the crowning glory of Spalletti’s long and eventful coaching career which had brought plenty of plaudits but few trophies.

It was his first Italian league crown and first trophy of any sort in Italy since the Italian Cup win at Roma in 2008. 

Spaletti won league titles in Russia with Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2010 and 2012.

Italian media report that former Barcelona and Spain coach Luis Enrique is the favourite to replace Spalletti next season.
