Luciano Spalletti new Italy coach

Luciano Spalletti new Italy coach

The Italian family is growing.

Recently surprised by the unexpected departure of Roberto Mancini, the Italian federation wasted no time in turning the page. Antonio Conte and Luciano Spalletti were the two favorites to take up the torch, and it was ultimately the last city to obtain the post of coach of the Nazionale. The FIGC formalized the news this Friday evening in a press release where Gabriele Gravina, the president of the federation, spoke: “The national team needed a great coach and I’m very happy that he accepted the technical direction of the Azzurri. His enthusiasm and competence will be fundamental for the challenges that await Italy in the months to come. »

We can therefore imagine that an amicable agreement could be found between Gravina and Aurelio De Laurentiis, since Spalletti still officially belonged to Naples and that the Serie A champion club demanded three million euros to let his former coach slip away. . The information on the duration of the contract was not communicated by the FIGC but according to Gazzetta dello Sportanyone who initially wanted to do a sabbatical year would have signed up for three years.

Euro 2024 is in the sights.
