Serie A: Spalletti voted best coach of the 2022-23 season

Luciano Spalletti, who led Naples to the third Italian championship title in its history, was elected Monday by his peers as the best coach in Serie A. Spalletti won the “golden bench” for the second time in his career: he had already been distinguished at the end of the 2004-05 season when he finished 4th in the championship with Udinese.

Of the 61 coaches from Serie A, Serie B and Serie C consulted, 42 spoke in favor of Spalletti who was ahead of Simone Inzaghi (Inter Milan/6 votes) and Stefano Pioli (AC Milan/3 votes) who had been distinguished at the end of the 2021-22 season. Under his leadership, Napoli flew through the 2022-23 season, relegating their runner-up, Lazio, to 16 points, and putting an end to 33 years of waiting and failures.

Spalletti, 64, has since left Napoli who, under the leadership of Rudi Garcia then Walter Mazzarri, lost all hope of retaining their title and is in 9th place in the championship, 22 points behind Inter. Since August, he has been coach of Italy, the reigning European champion, which, after failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, painfully snatched its ticket for Euro 2024 in Germany.

Former Italian international Fabio Grosso was voted best coach in Serie B for leading Frosinone into the elite. He left the Lazio club last June and had a brief and painful stint of less than two months in the French Championship in Lyon.
