January 30 In the 20th round of Serie A, Naples beat Roma 2-1 at home
Before the game, Naples coach Spalletti gave Roma coach Mourinho a birthday present.
Mourinho celebrated his 60th birthday on January 26, and Spalletti revealed that he gave him a birthday present before the game.
“I gave him a Pulcinella, a local traditional mask in Naples. This is also a gift I gave to all the coaches who participated in the Champions League.” Pulcinella is a puppet mask in the shape of an eagle’s mouth, which is a local specialty of Naples.
And Mourinho said: “I want to thank Spalletti, because he gave me a birthday present, I am very happy, we hugged each other after the game. Today we saw Naples played very well, with a championship level.
I have won eight league titles, I know what it means to have such a champion player, the Serie A title this season must be theirs.”
