Fabio Cannavaro’s agent has admitted that “I see him coaching Napoli, but not for another five or six years.”
Cannavaro was born in Naples and spent the first three years of his playing career at the San Paolo, before going on to enjoy huge success with Parma, Juventus and Real Madrid, as well as captaining Italy to the World Cup in 2006.
He recently returned to Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande for a second stint as Coach, having replaced former Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, but Enrico Fedele believes he will return to his hometown club one day.
“Cannavaro becoming a director at Napoli? I see him more as a Coach, but not for five or six years,” the representative Fedele told Radio Marta.
The 44-year-old also guided Tianjin Quanjian to the Chinese second-tier title and led Emirati outfit Al Ahli to a domestic double.
