A one all draw was enough to see Napoli clinch their first scudetto in 33 years as Victor Osimhen’s equaliser against Udinese proved vital at the Dacia Arena yesterday.
Not many fancied the Partenopei when the season started off but Luciano Spalletti has managed to string this team together to become a well oiled machine, brushing aside almost every team on their way.
Having missed the chance to win the silverware in front of their home fans on Sunday, the big boys from Naples just about did enough to record a remarkable feat against all odds yesterday.
At age 64, Spalletti became the oldest coach to win the Serie A title and fittingly it’s the first ever Scudetto title of his career, having only won the Coppa Italia in the country.
The title show off and coronation would take place in their next outing when they host Fiorentina, but one thing that would linger in the memories of Napoli faithfuls is how Nigeria’s own Victor Osimhen, Georgia’s Kvaratskhelia and co formed a formidable squad that went on to ink their names in the annals of the finest trophy in Italy.
