Napoli sacks coach Walter Mazzarri, Francesco Calzona will be the new coach

Naples (Italy). Defending champions Napoli have changed their coach for the second time of the season, two days before they face Barcelona in the Champions League. Napoli sacked their coach Walter Mazzarri after training on Monday and appointed Slovakian coach Francesca Calzona.

Calzona has been a former assistant at a Serie A team but has never managed a team at club level. Mazari was appointed coach in November itself, replacing Rudy Garcia. Napoli has become the first team in Serie A to change two coaches in the same season after winning the title.

At the same time, Napoli are in danger of becoming one of the worst-performing defending champion teams in Serie A history. The team is currently in ninth place with 36 points in 24 matches. Napoli has to face Barcelona in the Champions League pre-quarterfinals on Wednesday.
