SSC Napoli replace head coach Walter Mazzarri with Francesco Calzona!

Defending Serie A champions SSC Napoli have announced the sacking of their head coach Walter Mazzarri and replacing him with Francesco Calzona, who returns to the club.

This coach change happens two days before Napoli face FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, while they are only 10th in the Italian Serie A.

Aurelio De Laurentiis has announced the Napoli coach change on X (Twitter)

“I’d like to thank Walter Mazzarri, a friend of both the De Laurentiis family and Napoli, for having supported the team in such a difficult moment. He will always remain in the hearts of the people of Naples and our family. I’d also like to say welcome back to Francesco Calzona, who has worked with us in the past, under both Sarri and Spalletti.”
