Osimhen’s coach quits after leading Napoli to Serie A title

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen’s coach at Napoli Luciano Spalletti will leave the club at the end of the season after leading the club to the their first Serie A title in 33 years.

The 64-year-old said he was leaving the club to take some time out of the game.

“I need to take some time to rest because I’m pretty tired,” he said.

“I don’t know if you can call it a year’s sabbatical but I won’t be working. I won’t be coaching Napoli or any other team.”

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said he would “respect” the decision.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai, De Laurentiis said, “He’s a free man, he’s given us something and I thank him, it’s right that he does what he wants.”

The Italian had one year left on his contract after joining Napoli in July 2021.

Spaletti who started his managerial career in 1993 has managed nine Italian sides, with two stints at Roma from 2005 to 2009 and 2017 to 2017. His only job abroad was at Russinn Premier League side Zenith Saint Petersburg between 2009 and 2014.
