Luis Enrique wants Premier League job — de Laurentiis



Luis Enrique wants Premier League job -- de Laurentiis

Aurelio de Laurentiis, the president of Napoli, has shed light on the club’s search for a new coach following the departure of Luciano Spalletti.

Speculation had been rife that Napoli was in discussions with former Spain and Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique. However, de Laurentiis has revealed that convincing Enrique to join the Serie A club may prove to be challenging as the Spaniard has his sights set on a move to the Premier League.

While acknowledging that Luis Enrique is a highly esteemed coach, de Laurentiis admitted that luring him to Napoli would be a difficult task considering the Spaniard’s strong interest in the Premier League.

“For sure Luis is a top coach. We discussed the possibility of him coming to Napoli, but I can tell you that he has Premier League clubs in mind,” de Laurentiis revealed.

The Napoli president also humorously pointed out the differences between Italy and England, saying, “I said that he won’t find the same food or places there… but the Premier League is more attractive, of course.”

De Laurentiis’s comments suggest that the allure of managing in the highly competitive English league is proving to be a significant factor for Enrique.

Napoli is now faced with the challenge of exploring other options as they continue their search for a new coach.

While Luis Enrique was considered a strong candidate, his inclination towards a Premier League opportunity has shifted the focus of the club’s pursuit. Napoli will now have to turn their attention to alternative managerial targets who may be more inclined to take on the Serie A challenge.

The departure of Luciano Spalletti has left a void in Napoli’s coaching setup, and the club is keen to find a suitable replacement who can lead the team to success. Napoli had enjoyed a successful season under Spalletti, securing a fourth-place finish in Serie A and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

As the search for a new coach continues, Napoli will be hoping to find a candidate who can build upon the progress made under Spalletti and guide the team to even greater achievements in the upcoming season.

The club’s fans eagerly await further developments in the managerial hunt as they look forward to an exciting future for Napoli.
