Carlo Ancelotti speaks after Napoli sack

Carlo Ancelotti has reacted to his sack by Napoli on Tuesday.

Ancelotti led Napoli to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 with an emphatic 4-0 win over Genk on Tuesday night. However, that result would not stop the club authorities from wielding the stick as the decision seemed to have been taken long before the match.

The victory over the Belgian side was Napoli’s first in 10 games so Ancelotti’s sack was not entirely a surprise, and he appears to have left the club on good terms.

"I would like to personally thank the club, its employees, my players, my staff and the president for the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience in a wonderful city such as Naples." The former Chelsea boss tweeted on Wednesday.

Even before he was dismissed in Naples, Ancelotti was being linked with the vacant manager roles at both Arsenal and Everton.
