A couple of hours after announcing the departure of Gennaro Gattuso, Hirving Lozano already has a new coach. Sergio Conceiçao will be Napoli's new coach for the 2021-22 season, as reported by Corriere dello Sport on Monday morning. The Portuguese coach has managed Porto for the last four seasons.
After the final disappointment in the season of Napoli, who could not qualify for the Champions League on the last day, at home and having it in his hand, the future of Gatusso on the bench goes through a goodbye and that the Neapolitan club has already found a replacement .
Porto has finished second in a league that Sporting conquered and was planted in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, after eliminating Juventus, and being eliminated by Chelsea in the next round. The 46-year-old Portuguese coach returns to Italy, where he played for Lazio, Parma and Inter Milan, and will now make his debut on the bench.
Anyway, the option of Luciano Spalletti still stands, because, although it is true that Conceiçao has reached an agreement with Napoli, he still has one more year of contract with Porto. Jorge Mendes, representative of Conceiçao, will be in charge of trying to resolve the incorporation of the same to the Neapolitan bench and everything indicates that it will be done without problems.
How much will Sergio Conceiçao's salary be in Napoli?
The agreement appears to have been reached for a two-year contract worth € 5 million gross for each of them. Sergio Conceiçao could land in Rome on Wednesday morning, and then go to Filmauro to sign a contract with Naples. Only after signing will De Laurentiis's official tweet arrive.
