Italian Spalletti, 62, returns to management for the first time since he was sacked by Inter in 2019.

“Welcome, Luciano – we’ll do great work together,” said Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

Spalletti’s arrival brings a wealth of experience having managed 482 Serie A games and won two Italian Cups and a Super Cup with Roma, in addition to two Russian league titles and a cup win in his time at Zenit St Petersburg.
