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.
