OFFICIAL: Osimhen Gets New Coach At Napoli

Victor Osimhen will play under a new coach at Napoli after the Serie A champions appointed Slovakian Francesco Calzona on a short-term contract.

Napoli officially announced the appointment of Calzona on their X handle.

Calzona, who is also the head coach of the Slovakia national team, replaced Walter Mazzarri and has signed a six-month deal.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis surprised many by bringing back Mazzarri after a 10-year absence following the Rudi Garcia sacking.

It was an appointment that did not go as planned as Mazzarri only managed just six wins across his 17 games in charge.

De Laurentiis initially planned to wait until the summer to replace Mazzarri, but continued poor results has led to the change ahead of Napoli’s Champions League knockout clash with Barcelona.

Calzona will lead Slovakia at the European Championship in the summer.
