You know things are bad when it's the day before a Champions League last 16 first leg and your new manager has only just put his highlighters and coffee cup on the desk. That's the situation right now at Napoli, with Walter Mazzarri, who only replaced Rudi Garcia in November, sacked on Monday night after the weekend 1-1 draw with Genoa. Francesco Calzona, a former Little Donkeys assistant coach and current Slovakia coach, is the club's third manager of a season that has the defending Serie A champions languishing in ninth place.

Barcelona have also struggled to back up last season's domestic title victory. The 2022/23 La Liga winners sit third in Spain behind runaway league leaders Real Madrid and surprise package Girona, los Cules' up-and-down form and the unique pressures of managing the Catalan giants taking their toll on Xavi to the point the legendary former midfielder will step down as manager at the end of the season. Robert Lewandowski has found some recent form with four goals in his last three games, but it's 16-year-old sensation Lamine Yamal – the latest La Masia graduate – who most quickens pulses.
