Napoli sack Carlo Ancelotti despite qualifying for Champions League knockout stage

Maarten Vandevoordt

"Napoli has made a decision to revoke the role of technical manager of the first team from Mr. Carlo Ancelotti", read a statement on Twitter.

Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked by Napoli despite taking the Serie A side to the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday with a 4-0 win over Genk.

As speculation had intensified surrounding Ancelotti's dismissal, so too have rumours linking former AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso with the now-vacant post.

"The relationship of friendship, esteem and mutual respect between the club, its president Aurelio De Laurentiis and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact".

Freddie Ljungberg has been given the post on a caretaker basis as Arsenal work though a list of candidates to take the role permanently.

Chilean Plane Bound for Antarctica Goes Missing With 38 Aboard
The plane took off Monday from the city of Punta Arenas in Patagonia, headed for King George Island, Antarctica . The names of those aboard the missing airplane were released Tuesday.

Despite securing a spot among the competition's last-16, Ancelotti had seen the club suffer a terrible run of domestic results. I don't know anything about contact with other coaches, we just focused on the game. After winning two of their next three matches, they embarked on awful run of form to fall off the pace in the hunt for the top four.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the Champions League win over Belgian side Genk, the Italian manager had suggested that his time at the club could be up.

The 60-year-old was shown the door by Bayern Munich after a player rebellion, while he has Napoli sitting a lowly seventh in Serie A.

He joined Napoli in the summer of 2018 and led the club to second-place finish in his debut season.
