New Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti has been given the highest honour and one he’ll probably appreciate – his own pizza recipe.

The tactician filled his autobiography with food references, even down to a pun in the title, and begins pre-season training tomorrow.

News agency Ansa report local pizza guru Salvatore Urzitelli has created a special new Ancelotti Pizza.

It’ll be rectangular, like a football pitch, and divided into four sections: four cheeses with baby tomatoes, provola, rucola and pancetta, then pumpkin, provola and aubergine, another with provola, yellow and red corbarini tomatoes, then pistachio, mortadella and more provola cheese.
