Victor Osimhen’s former boss at Napoli Gennaro Gattuso has been appointed the new head coach at Fiorentina.
Fiorentina confirmed Gattuso’s appointment on their official website on Tuesday.
“Gennaro Gattuso will be the new coach of Fiorentina. Rocco Commisso has confirmed the identity of the new first-team coach for the 2021/22 season.”
Gattuso left his role at Napoli after failing to secure Champions League qualification, with the team ending the season fifth in the standings, one point behind fourth-placed Juventus.
The 43-year-old’s last game in charge of Napoli was the 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona on Sunday.
During his time at Napoli, Gattuso led them to the Coppa Italia title where they defeated Juventus on penalties in the 2019/2020 season.
