Less than 24 hours after dismissing Ancelotti, Napoli appointed former AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso with a six-month contract.
“Welcome Gennaro Gattuso,” Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said at a press conference for the launch of the new Napoli coach on 11/12. “We have nurtured a dream but suddenly woke up halfway. I didn’t want to disrupt Carlo Ancelotti’s beautiful dream, and found that it would be better if we followed our own paths. and Ancelotti are still friends. “
Sky Italy said Napoli signed a six-month contract with Gattuso, with a 12-month extension. The first match of the former AC Milan coach was against Parma this weekend.
Gattuso, 41, has been leading Milan for a year and a half, and has been unemployed since May 2019. During his two years at San Siro, Gattuso helped Milan advance from the sixth position of the 2017-2018 season to the fifth of the 2018-2019 season. However, that is not enough to convince the boss of this team.
Gattuso’s predecessor, Ancelotti, is now pursued by Everton. The owner of Goodison Park wants an experienced coach to fight at the helm of the captain, after failing to use young coaches like Ronald Koeman or Marco Silva.
Besides Everton, Arsenal is also interested in Ancelotti. “Gunners” are using interim coach Freddie Ljungberg. The achievements of the former Swedish player are not impressive after three games: one win, one draw, one loss.
Before leaving Napoli, Ancelotti led many big clubs such as Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. He won the Champions League three times, in which famously helped Real complete the Decima (the 10th cup of the Champions League/Champions League) in the 2013-2014 season.
Solskjaer: ‘Many top players want to rebuild Man Utd’
Solskjaer believes Man Utd is still the leading club and the leading reputation in attracting good players.
After a three-game winning streak, Man Utd revived with two impressive victories with the same score 2-1 against Tottenham and Man City. Despite being 4 points behind the top 4, Solskjaer teachers and students still have many chances to win the Champions League place next season, because the Premier League has not gone half way.
In the Europa League, Man Utd also won tickets to continue a round early. The competition with AZ Alkmaar on 12/12 only meant to compete for the top of the table.
