ADL: Ancelotti ‘extraordinary’, Sarri…

Aurelio De Laurentiis believes Carlo Ancelotti is an ‘extraordinary’ Napoli Coach but rues how ‘we gave Maurizio Sarri everything and didn’t win anything’.

Speaking to L’Equipe on Friday, De Laurentiis took yet another swipe at Sarri for not winning Serie A in his three years with Napoli and praised Ancelotti for his ‘lovely’ demeanour. 

“There remains the pleasure of having played well but also the bitterness of not having won anything,” the President told the newspaper.

“We gave Sarri everything and in three years we didn’t win anything. Ancelotti’s a lovely person, who entered the world of football by mistake.

“He would do extraordinary things in any industry because he’s a serene guy, who holds no grudges with anyone.

“He also expresses balance, and balance is a rare virtue.”
