Napoli appoint Ancelotti after Sarri departure”

"He brought joy and prestige to Naples and Napoli fans all over the world with an entertaining brand of football that drew praise from all quarters".

Just 24 hours ago De Laurentiis insisted: "There is no more time for Sarri". The arrival of Ancelotti is a real coup, he's a great tactician.

"I like a lot watching Napoli and I learn a lot from Maurizio's teams", said Pep Guardiola after Napoli faced Manchester City this season. "Forza Napoli always", Ancelotti then said in a message posted in four different languages - Italian, English, French and Spanish.

His aim was "to return Napoli to the highest position of the Serie A and Champions League". He will be officially presented at his new club on Jul 9.

Further reports in Italy claim Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg are also keen to recruit Sarri amid the speculation he has been lined up as a potential successor to Conte at Stamford Bridge.

In his third season in charge, former Empoli manager Sarri delivered 91 points from league games, however that haul was not enough to deny Juve a seventh straight Scudetto. He also has won multiple Champions League titles across his spells with Milan and Madrid.

He was heavily linked with the Italian national-team job before the Italian Football Federation confirmed Roberto Mancini in the role, per Tom Doyle of the Evening Standard. The club has offered Sarri a £5 million a season contract.

Napoli appointed the much-travelled and hugely successful Carlo Ancelotti as their new coach on Wednesday, handing him the job of trying to end Juventus' dominance of Serie A.

Stamford Bridge chiefs are expected to cut ties with the former Juventus gaffer soon and immediately begin their search for Chelsea's next manager.
