Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella has revealed his desire take charge of Serie A rivals Napoli.
The former Catania trainer has earned plaudits for pushing AC Milan close in the race for the final Champions League qualification spot in Serie A this season.
He has now revealed a soft spot for Napoli and their club legend Diego Maradona.
“The first game I went to see was a contest where Maradona scored three goals,” he told BeIn Sport.
“I have a fondness towards Napoli.
“Maybe one day I will have the good fortune to coach at Napoli. I’m still young and I hope I can still do this job for a long time.”
Montella explained his philosophy as coach and believes he has helped shaped the Fiorentina squad, who look set to finish fourth this season with Milan four points ahead of them and Udinese four points adrift in fifth with two games to go.
“The intention is to always play good football, I try to preach the idea of being proactive,” he said.
“During this season – as well as last year – I have had the good fortune to train smart guys. But I also add value to this team.”
One point from their final two games is all that Fiorentina need to secure a spot in the UEFA Europa League next campaign.
