Report: Spalletti turns down Chile

According to reports in Italy, Luciano Spalletti has turned down an offer from the Chilean Federation and won’t accept a new job before his contract with Inter expires in June.

The former Roma and Inter coach is reported to be in talks to replace Colombia bound Reinaldo Rueda, becoming the new head coach of Chile national team.

According to FcInternews, however, the Italian tactician has turned down the offer as he wants to see-off his contract with the Nerazzurri who sacked him in summer 2019 to hire Antonio Conte.

Fiorentina consider Spalletti?

Fiorentina are being linked with former Inter coach Luciano Spalletti, as the pressure mounts on Beppe Iachini.

Fiorentina are 12th in the top tier after four games and haven’t won since Serie A Week 1 against Torino on September 26.

The 2-2 draw with Spezia last weekend has reportedly pushed the Viola hierarchy to consider replacing Iachini at the helm.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims Spalletti, who is tied to the Nerazzurri and guaranteed €400,000 a month until June, is wanted at the Artemio Franchi.

La Viola have put the threat of relegation behind them for now, but Owen Diana worries about how they’ll rebuild for Rocco Commisso’s ambitious vision.

As the dust settled after a convulsive weekend at the bottom of Serie A, Fiorentina could breathe a huge sigh of relief. Barring a collapse of historic proportions, La Viola’s spot at the top table of Italian football is all but assured after a 2-1 win at Parma. Nevertheless, their laboured performance in a match that represented a huge step towards salvation further exposed the uncertain future of one of the country’s most important clubs.

Spalletti: 'Fonseca needs time'

Luciano Spalletti has urged Roma to stick with Paulo Fonseca, who has ‘brought the discussion of attacking football back to the forefront’ in Serie A.

Fonseca is reportedly under increasing pressure after back-to-back defeats, which have left Roma 12 points outside the Champions League places.
