The 64-year-old Spalletti went for his new and first ink at Valentino Russo, a tattoo artist based in Naples. Football Italia reports that the artist has previously worked with other top names in football, like Paris Saint-Germain's goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnaruma, former Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi and Napoli's captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo.

Victor Osimhen and new signing Khvicha Kvaratskhelia ran the show, with the former bagging 23 goals and on course to winning the Golden Boot. His teammate has scored 12 goals and set up a further ten goals.

Many had expected Napoli to struggle given that they had lost squad leaders in Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and skipper Kalidou Koulibaly. But deft business from the club saw the purchases of Kvaratskhelia and Kim-Jae In, who helped the side celebrate their first title since Diego Maradona's win in 1990.

They conclude their season against Bologna and Sampdoria.

Mourinho's European trophies tattoos

Sports Brief previously reported that Mourinho revealed a new tattoo. Mourinho said that he wants the tattoo to highlight all the European trophies that he has won in his illustrious career.

Mourinho, now in charge of AS Roma, became the first manager to win all the three available European trophies when he led the Italian side to the inaugural UEFA Conference League.

"This is my tattoo.
The joy of the Roman people led me to do it. Then I thought about something special, something that would honour all the clubs where I won European competitions. At the same time, I wanted a unique tattoo, one that, so far, I am the only one who can have it…"
