Napoli have sacked their manager Carlo Ancelotti

The Serie A side made the decision just hours after Ancelotti presided over a 4-0 victory over Genk in the Champions League, which ensured they qualified for the Round of 16.

“Napoli have decided to relieve Ancelotti of his duty as a manager,” the club said in a statement published late on Tuesday night.

“The current relationship between Ancelotti, the president Aurelio De Laurentiis and the club – which is based on friendship, mutual esteem and respect – remains unchanged.”

Immediately after the victory over Genk, Ancelotti had told reporters he had no intention of resigning from his post.

“I’ll see the President [on Wednesday] and we’ll see,” he said.

Ancelotti, who previously managed Chelsea, has been linked to Premier League sides Arsenal and Everton in recent weeks.
