The 54-year-old is the fourth head coach to be appointed since the departure of Scudetto-winning manager Luciano Spalletti following the 2022-23 season.

Napoli endured a disastrous title-defence which saw them finish in a lowly 10th place in Serie A, in what is regarded as one of the worst title defences in the league’s history.
