Rudi Garcia has landed a new job…
Italian champions Napoli have named the 59-year-old Spanish-French former-soccer-player-turned-manager as their new coach, replacing Luciano Spalletti, the Serie A side said on Thursday.
Garcia coached Italy’s AS Roma from 2013-16, before moving to French Ligue 1 sides Marseille and Lyon.
Garcia coached Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr last season. They finished second in the Saudi Pro League with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the attack.
Al Nassr parted ways Garcia in April, amid reports of an uneasy relationship with Ronaldo.
Former Napoli coach Spalletti, who led them to their first Italian league title since 1990, asked to take a break from the job for a year.
