Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the appointment of Gianluca Spinelli as their new goalkeeper coach.
The Italian leaves Chelsea after almost two years in charge under Antonio Conte’s management.
Spinelli has put the pen to paper on a deal until June 2023, as PSG confirmed via their official website.
The former goalkeeper coach of Como 1907, Genoa CFC and Italy national team, reunites with Gianluigi Buffon.
Spinelli has been crucial in Thibaut Courtois‘ development at Stamford Bridge and won silverware twice as Chelsea lifted the Premier League title in 2017 and FA Cup trophy earlier in May.
Paris Saint-Germain may have been given a boost in their transfer pursuit of Chelsea target and AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who could be eager to work with an italian goalkeeper coach as well as alongside with Juventus legend Buffon.
