Gennaro Gattuso reportedly rejected 18 jobs before deciding to take on the task of succeeding Carlo Ancelotti at Napoli.
After six months without a job, the former Milan boss is back in Serie A to help Napoli turn things around after their domestic sturggles under Carlo Ancelotti.
La Repubblica reports Rino could have slipped from the hands of Partenopei President Aurelio De Laurentiis.
That is because, as per the newspaper, he refused offers from 18 other clubs, among them Valencia, Genoa and Sampdoria, while Fiorentina “thought about him”.
Gattuso, who was unveiled yesterday, will make his Serie A bow for Napoli against Parma this weekend.
