Italian side, Napoli has decided to part ways with Carlos Ancelotti despite 4-0 champions league boost against Genk.
Carlos Ancelotti is now left without a job as his sack creates larger vaccum for Arsenal to contact the former Chelsea manager who is also linked to a move to Goodison Park take over as Everton manager.
Having failed to win in 9 games across all competitions, last night presented to Ancelotti what he thought was a revival to his long term stay at Napoli.
But unlikely for the former Chelsea manager, his sack was already imminent while he went into the game against Genk on his second year as Napoli manager.
Although a very weird decision by the club considering the manager’s past stats and also the 4-0 win which was hoped to have at least a little bit restored the broken relationship between the club president and Ancelotti.

But guess among all, the sin of disobedience is one very hard to let go; Ancelotti and his boys had disobeyed the club president when he demanded they all attended a week-long training camp. The whole team surprisingly went home despite the order from above.
Funny though that Ancelotti never knew he already his name on the sack letter when he told reporters last night of his plans to meet with Aurelio de Laurentiis to decide what is best for the club.
“I’ll speak to president De Laurentiis tomorrow and we’ll make the best decision for Napoli.
“As far as I’m concerned, with certain players coming back and the right conditions in place, this team can still target fourth place,” Ancelotti said.
“”The win tonight is a weight off our shoulders and can give the players a big boost for the future.” Read Full statements here.
But a very bad response from the club who tweeted on their page about the manager’s sack in less than 3 hours after the victory.
“SSC Napoli has taken the decision to part ways with first-team coach Carlo Ancelotti.
“The friendship and mutual respect between the club, president Aurelio de Laurentiis and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact.”
According to reports from the Italian media, Gennaro Gattuso who was sacked by AC Milan has been linked as Ancelotti’s replacement despite his poor finish at Milan.
Ancelotti is one of only three managers to win three European Cups/Champions Leagues – along with Liverpool legend Bob Paisley and current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.
