Serie A with Atalanta and Napoli football clubs

Marcello was then given the opportunity to coach a new Serie A team: Atalanta. The coach not only easily avoided relegation but allowed the team to almost achieve an historic qualification in the European Cups. His talent was now in the spotlight and many experts labelled him as one of the most promising young coaches of the time. 

The following year, Marcello Lippi was called to Naples to coach the city team. This season eventually glorified him as a major league coach, as he neither failed nor missed a chance and successfully led Naples to qualify in the UEFA Cup.
