Spalletti addresses Napoli exit, unsure if he’ll return next season

IF24 Desk

Tonight, former Roma, Inter, and Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti opened up in an interview with Sky Sport, touching on various subjects.

The 64 year-old first addressed this past season’s success with the Partenopei and his decision to leave once the campaign ended.

“I’m more than happy with the enthusiasm and joy I experienced in Napoli,” he began.

“Neapolitans gave me incredible feelings and I’ll always defend them. My decision to take a sabbatical year? You (the media) invented this thing and carried it on, constantly calling it a sabbatical.”

Adding, “All I said was I needed a breather and to sort some things out. The concept of a sabbatical doesn’t fit for me very well but it’s still tough to say if I’ll return next season.”

“I’ve got a young daughter and I want to spend time with her. Right now Napoli deserve different things than what I’m able to give right now.”
