Napoli Coach Luciano Spalletti Shows Off His Incredible Kit Collection

Post-match shirt swaps are common practice among football players, whose collections can grow as long as they are still playing. Luciano Spalletti has proven that managers also like to get in on the act, as he showed off his collection of match worn shirts from some of the best players of the last 20+ years.

Spalletti Shows Off Incredible Kit Collection

The Napoli coach has previously shared a photo of his collection on Instagram, but we got a better look at his shirts as he spoke about them in a video for DAZN. During his managerial career, Spalletti has coached Empoli, Sampdoria, Venezia, Udinese, Roma, Zenit St Petersburg, Inter and is currently in charge of Napoli, giving him plenty of opportunities to get his hands on jerseys worn by Serie A idols, as well as plenty of others from abroad.

Messi, Ronaldo (Il Fenomeno), Batistuta, Drogba, Rooney, Maldini, Fabregas, Cannavaro, Vieri, Kaka, Rivaldo, Cafu and Beckham are just some of the names hung on his star-studded wall, but one player his his own dedicated section.

Il Gladiatore, Francesco Totti, played under Spalletti during both of his spells with the club, but things ended badly between the pair during Totti's last season when he was dropped from the first team by Spalletti. Il Capitano retired at the end of the season and the manager left the club by mutual consent, but the relationship between the two was never repaired.

Spalletti obviously stills holds Totti in high regard despite their difficulties, praising his qualities on the pitch and in the dressing room, describing him as "the backbone of the squad", and seems to treasure his many Totti shirts.
