SSC Napoli has parted ways with coach Gennaro Gattuso after two seasons. The club announced after the last game day of Serie A. Naples lost their place in the Champions League with a disappointing 1: 1 (0: 0) against Hellas Verona and ended the season in fifth place. Juventus Turin still passed the table.
“I’m happy about these two seasons, thank you for your work and I wish you lots of success,” tweeted Naples club owner Aurelio De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis wrote on the club’s website: “Grazie Mister!”
The 43-year-old Gattuso has been a coach in Naples since December 2019. He had replaced the fired ex-Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti.
