Napoli parts ways with Mazzarri, appoints Francesco Calzona as new manager

Posted : 20 February 2024

Napoli has made a managerial change, parting ways with Walter Mazzarri after only three months in charge. Mazzarri, who took over from Rudy Garcia in November, leaves Napoli in the ninth position in Serie A.


The Italian champions have swiftly appointed Slovakia's head coach, Francesco Calzona, as his replacement. Calzona, who took charge of Slovakia in August 2022, has reportedly signed a contract until the end of the season with Napoli and will continue overseeing the national team.


Aurelio de Laurentiis, the owner of Napoli, expressed gratitude to Mazzarri for his contribution during a challenging period for the team. Mazzarri's departure comes ahead of a crucial Champions League last-16 first-leg match against Barcelona on Wednesday.


The decision reflects Napoli's commitment to addressing the team's performance and seeking new leadership to navigate the challenges they face in Serie A and the Champions League.


Francesco Calzona, the incoming manager, has a history with Napoli, having previously served as an assistant under Maurizio Sarri and Luciano Spalletti. His recent role as Slovakia's head coach showcases his experience and managerial capabilities.


Calzona's appointment comes at a critical juncture, and Napoli will be looking to him to bring positive changes and steer the team to success in both domestic and international competitions.
