It has been officially confirmed that Luciano Spallettis time at Napoli will come to end this summer. The former Inter and Roma boss had hinted on a number of occasions that he intended to leave Stadio Diego Armando Maradona despite leading the club to their first Serie A title in 33 years and president Aurelio De Laurentiis triggering a contract extension that would have kept him in Naples until 2024.

Why is free man Spalletti leaving Napoli?

Spalletti, however, preferred to leave it up to De Laurentiis to make the split official, which was confirmed late on Sunday. Appearing on the Che Tempo Che Fa show on Rai 3 on Italian television, the Napoli president announced the title-winning coach wouldnt continue in the dugout next season and revealed the reasons why. Spalletti is a free man. If someone comes to you and says I did my best, but the cycle is over. I want to have a sabbatical year even though I have a year left on my contract, then I can only say thank you and let him be free to do whatever he wants. I wish him all the best.
