Italy’s Serie A (first division) may have lost a bit of luster in recent years, but it still boasts some of the finest coaches in the world. Walter Mazzarri managed Napoli from 2009-13 — a period which saw it win the Italian Cup (2011-12) and finish second in Serie A (2012-13).
But when Inter Milan came calling, Mazzarri couldn’t say no. He replaced Andrea Stramaccioni, who was fired after Inter finished ninth in the league. He must get Inter Milan back into the Champions League (which it won just three years ago) or he’ll have to read stories about the grass being greener.
