A 1-1 draw at home to Genoa at the weekend spelled the end for Mazzarri, who replaced Rudi Garcia in November 2023, having previously managed the club between 2009 and 2013.

Under the leadership of Mazzarri (62), Napoli have recorded just six wins in 17 matches, which forced club president Aurelio De Laurentiis to act ahead of the Champions League clash.

Napoli won scudetto (Serie A champions) for the third time in their history, last season and the first time since 1990. However, their attempt to defend the title this season ended in disaster.
