Montella admits he feels ties with Napoli.
"The first game I saw had Diego Armando Maradona scoring a hat-trick. I was about eight years old," he told Be In Sport.
"There is fondness for Napoli and that remains when you become a professional, but the objectives and personal targets sometimes run into conflict with your favourite team. That is part of the job.
"Who knows, maybe one day I'll have the opportunity to be the Coach of Napoli. I am still so young and hope to be in this profession for many years to come."
