Serie A: Osimhen Gets New Coach At Napoli


When the injured Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen returns to action with the Italian champions, it will surely be under new manager Walter Mazzari.

The president of the club Aurelio De Laurentiis on Tuesday announced the sacking of Rudi Garcia as the manager of the team following inconsistent results that have been recorded this season.

The decision has already been made to sack current head coach Rudi Garcia after the team’s disappointing start to the season – eight wins, four draws and four defeats.

The 1-0 loss to Empoli on Sunday has sealed the Frenchman’s fate, ending his time in charge after just four months.

The football supremo announced the appointment of Walter Mazzari as the new manager of the club on Tuesday evening.

The 62-year-old coach, who previously spent four years in the Campania capital from 2009 to 2013, is happy to act as a custodian of the club until the end of the season.

Osimhen is expected to return to action after the international break.
