Based on the sources, it states that adapting the classic children’s tale in honor of the Napoli manager whose club is currently dominating the league, Luciano Spalletti had a farm.
About the Sabbatical Farm
Spalletti had chickens and ducks on this farm in addition to some donkeys, two ostriches, and three alpacas. La Rimessa also grew olives for oil, and grapes for wine, and entertained a regular stream of tourists on this estate amid Tuscany’s soft rolling hills.
And on this farm, Spalletti spent two years studying the work of football’s greatest successful managers and honing his ideas about the game while still employed by Inter Milan but replaced by Antonio Conte.
Creating the Best Team in Italy
As a monk in a monastery, he claimed that in the solitude of Rimessa, he discovers new solutions since he is alone and can reach the depths of his soul. He has guided Napoli back into the Champions League and into first place in Italy’s Serie A since his comeback to the sport. Spalletti’s team has 50 goals in 17 games and is still unbeaten.
With a hat trick on Saturday, striker Victor Osimhen increased his personal total to eight in ten. Without breaking the bank, all of this. They do not belong to the top 25 richest football clubs in the world, according to Deloitte.
Sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli deserves praise for cutting the wage bill by an estimated £10 million by replacing veteran players like Lorenzo Insigne, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Fabian Ruiz with previously unknown gems like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia from Georgia and South Korea international Kim Min-Jae, who was playing in Turkey.
Giuntoli was the finding of managing director Andrea Chiavelli, who hired him in 2015 after he orchestrated Carpi’s four promotions from amateur football to Serie A. President Aurelio de Laurentiis, on the other hand, was unquestionably responsible for the hiring of Spalletti.
When Spalletti finally came to the end of his gardening leave at Inter and agreed to follow Gennaro Gattuso, De Laurentiis had previously tried to persuade him to move to Naples. Spalletti began the 2021–22 season with seven straight victories.
The treasured Fiat Panda of Spalletti was taken just before the eighth game. They triumphed once more, but the streak was broken in game nine, a scoreless draw at Roma since his lucky automobile was no longer there. Superstition is rife in Naples. Tuscan Spalletti dismissed it.
He was more worried about the club’s pursuit for a first scudetto since the two won in the Diego Maradona era losing its momentum due to important player injuries, namely Osimhen, and the loss of others to the Africa Cup of Nations.
It was viewed as a wasted possibility by the public and the media, including De Laurentiis, and questions about Spalletti’s character emerged. He was instructed to go if he wanted to see the missing Panda once more by a banner from the Napoli ultras. Behind the two Milan clubs, they came in third.
Helping Players to Grow
At the beginning of this season, Napoli was available at odds as long as 18-1 to win the title, but Spalletti, with the assistance of his coaching staff, has always been a master when it comes to developing players.
He devised a system to maximize Francesco Totti’s abilities as the false nine during his first stint at Roma, and after his return, Edin Dzeko’s phenomenal 39-goal season was made possible. Mo Salah and Radja Nainggolan advanced to new heights under his direction.
Stanislav Lobotka and Amir Rrahmani, who saw little action under Gattuso at Napoli, have quickly established themselves as fixtures. Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, a former Fulham midfielder, has been given a second chance, and Tanguy Ndombele, a mismatch for Tottenham, is rediscovering himself.
Although 63-year-old Spalletti has never won a scudetto, he has continuously produced success according to the standards set by his employers, and some people in Italy are still determined to make fun of him for it.
For the first time, he guided Udinese into the Champions League. He nearly won the league with Roma while also winning three domestic trophies. Inter had been out of the Champions League for six years before he brought them back. He twice led Zenit to Russian League triumphs.
His Reputation and Achievements
Always playing in an attractive, offensive manner. He came close to managing Chelsea while building this reputation during his first stint at Roma. On June 2, 2008, Spalletti received an invitation to a meeting with Roman Abramovich at the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris.
He ran into Carlo Ancelotti, who was then in charge of Milan, in the foyer and asked him what he was doing there. Ancelotti’s first move outside of Italy on a career that has seen him coach some of Europe’s top clubs and add two Champions League championships with Real Madrid to the two he won at Milan was installed at Stamford Bridge within a year of Chelsea’s appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari.
Following their meeting in Paris, Ancelotti went on to win the most awards for coaches. Spalletti went back to Roma, where some people think his flirtation with Chelsea destroyed everything, he had worked so hard to create in the Italian capital.
His work was never finished, and he may not have reached his full coaching ability. At Napoli, at least, not up to recently. He is once again generating the best football in Italy, and this may turn out to be his greatest achievement, his thoughts renewed by the peace of his existence on the farm.
