Italian soccer club Napoli sent a farewell message to its coach Gennaro Gattuso, on Sunday, after the team lost the last chance to qualify for the Champions League.
Napoli’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dashed after they drew 1-1 with Hellas Verona, Sunday, in the last 38th round of the Italian League.
Napoli ended the season in fifth place, one point behind Atalanta and Juventus, and two points behind second-placed Milan.
“Dear Gattuso, I am happy to spend the past two seasons with you, thank you for your work, and I wish you success wherever you go in the next stage,” Napoli club president Aurelio de Laurentis said on Twitter.
While the club contented itself with publishing a word by coach Gattuso, who took over as coach of Napoli in December 2019 as successor to Carlo Ancelotti, on Twitter, saying: “Thank you, Mr.”.
Under the leadership of Gattuso, Napoli won the Coppa Italia 2020, which is their first coronation as a coach.
