Spalletti was visited today in Napoli’s media room by a group of Ultras, fanatical fans of Napoli. Masked, they watched as he unpacked a box from Spalletti. What was in there? The steering wheel of his Fiat Panda. His car was stolen in October 2021. For a year and a half the story went that this would have happened by this group of Ultras, but today they made it clear that this was not the case. Who is behind the theft of his Fiat Panda remains a mystery. Pino Daniele’s steering wheel and CDs were a humorous way of thanking Spalletti for his work in Naples, journalists in attendance said. The balaclavas also went off again after the farewell gift was handed over.
What the veteran coach with only a steering wheel to do seems a mystery, but Spalletti could appreciate the gesture of the Ultras when we see the images. Spalletti also got back a number of CDs by the Neapolitan singer Pino Daniele, which were also in the stolen Fiat.
Spalletti’s Fiat Panda was stolen on October 16, 2021 in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, in front of the Britannique Hotel in Naples where he was staying at the time. Spalletti filed a police report, but no more information about the car was ever received. After his car was stolen, a banner was also put up near the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. ,,10-16-21: Spalletti, we’ll give you back your Panda as long as you leave! Hail, the thieves.”
What happened to the Fiat Panda is not clear, but at least Spalletti has his wheel back and will forever be in the hearts of the Neapolitans after giving Napoli its first league title since 1990.
