Carlo Ancelotti set to replace Maurizio as Napoli coach

Ancelotti is expected to replace Maurizio Sarri on the Partenopei bench, returning to Serie A after leaving Milan in 2009. Carlo Ancelotti was spotted at President Aurelio De Laurentiis’ house yesterday, and Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli - the official radio station of the club - says his contract will be officially signed soon. The station also warns fans not to expect an imminent announcement, because Sarri’s future has to be resolved first. Napoli can sack him for €500,000 before the end of this month, but if another club wants to sign him in that same time period they’ll have to pay €8m.
Ancelotti is a tactical coach, During Ancelotti's first season with Bayern Munich, Spanish midfielder Thiago praised Ancelotti for the freedom he gave the players to express themselves and for the confidence with which he instilled them. Ancelotti commented on the tactical changes he implemented at Bayern Munich, stating the main change is we press a bit more intermittently and we try to play more directly, more vertically," also adding that "if you're organised even an ordinary player can do very well because he'll have options and he'll know where they are and how to find them.
