Luciano Spalletti leaves Napoli. The club will soon be without a coach. Several coaches have been named to take over, including Italy coach Roberto Mancini. The Italian Football Association has denied this.
A few hours ago, Il Corriere Dello broke the news of Luciano Spalletti’s arrival. The Italian Football Association was quick to issue a formal denial: “The coach of the Italian national team, Roberto Mancini, has not received any calls from Aurelio De Laurentiis or his emissaries to take over the Napoli bench”, it read. This clarifies matters. Roberto Mancini is therefore excluded, as is Luis Enrique. Rafa Benitez is the only serious name still in the running.
