The veteran manager, who is known for his tactical nous and man-management skills, will work with the prolific Nigerian forward, who has been in sensational form for Napoli over the past few seasons.
Garcia’s appointment comes after Napoli’s former head coach, Spalletti, announced that he wanted to take a break from coaching. The Naples-based club was linked with several high-profile managers, including Luis Enrique and Christophe Galtier, but it was Garcia who ultimately landed the job.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis expressed his pleasure at the appointment, tweeting, “I have the pleasure of announcing that, after having met and discussed with him during the last ten days, Mr. Rudi Garcia will be the new coach of Napoli. A sincere welcome to him and a big good luck!”
Garcia’s appointment is expected to bring a new level of tactical sophistication to Napoli’s game. The Frenchman is known for his ability to get the best out of his players, and he will be tasked with continuing Napoli’s recent success, which includes their first Scudetto title in 33 years and their first-ever appearance in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.
One player who will be particularly excited about Garcia’s appointment is the prolific Nigerian forward. The forward has been in sensational form for Napoli over the past few seasons, and he will be looking to continue his fine form under Garcia’s tutelage.
Overall, Garcia’s appointment is a big statement of intent from Napoli. The club is clearly looking to build on its recent success and challenge for more trophies in the coming seasons. With Garcia at the helm, Napoli fans can be confident that their club is in good hands.
