It has been in the air for quite some time now, but now the decision has arrived: Napoli have decided to part ways with their manager Carlo Ancelotti, following a very poor start to the season. In fact, it doesn't come as a shock to anyone, although they did beat Genk by 4-0 earlier this evening.
The Partenopei have failed to live up to the expectations thus far this season, which has resulted in a poor environment at the club. After the training retreats, one of which was ignored by the players, it seems like Ancelotti lost his squad.
Furthermore, president De Laurentiis perhaps isn't the most patient one when things start to move in the wrong direction. Therefore, the decision was taken and announced by the club on their official twitter page (see below), stating that there are no hard feeling between the parties.
As highlights, former AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso should be the replacement. Given that they will play this weekend, the announcement could arrive very soon. By the looks of it, he will sign a 6-month contract.
