Managerial career

After spending his much of his early year managing many of the minor clubs in Campania, Simonelli had spells managing in the Italian lower leagues including Serie C2 and Serie C1, but also Serie B with Pescara. He had his most successful period as manager of Sorrento where he took the club from a 12th finish place in the 2008-2009 season to a 2nd-place finish and a play-off semi final in the 2010-2011 season.[1] At the end of that season he rejoined his old club Benevento, but had his contract mutually terminated in November 2011.[2]
