In an interview with Corriere Dello Sport, Aurelio De Laurentiis recounted the circumstances surrounding Rudi Garcia’s arrival. He admitted that he had first tried Luis Enrique. But he had to give up because of the large sum demanded by the Spaniard. He then tried Julian Nagelsmann before finally thinking of the Frenchman, who was recently sacked.

“I’ve made contact with Luis Enrique, that’s true. He sent people to Naples and kept everything on hold for three days. We had almost reached an agreement, until he said ‘no’ because he wanted to earn even more. He asked me for a lot of money,” declared Aurelio De Laurentiis, before continuing. “I tried [Julian] Nagelsmann. We talked for five or six days, no more, but nothing happened. It was only then that I went to see Rudi GarcĂ­a. He, who, in Italy, had already recorded some great achievements, with a bit of turbulence in the dressing room. No, it worked as planned,” he added.
