Napoli took on Gennaro Gattuso as their new coach to replace Carlo Ancelotti, who was dismissed Tuesday night, a few hours after qualifying for the UEFA Champions League first knockout round. The reasons for the exemption of Ancelotti are not entirely clear, although probably caused by the complicated management of disputes between players, staff and society in recent months. With Gattuso – the coach with whom last season Milan reached the best position in the last six years – Napoli hopes to regain unity and performance to recover the disadvantage in the standings, where it is now seventh, and remain competitive in the cup. The presentation press conference is currently underway at the Castel Volturno sports center.
