Former AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso was on Wednesday unveiled as Napoli coach, a day after the club sacked Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti, 60, lost his job less than four hours after Napoli defeated Genk 4-0 to progress to the last 16 of the Champions League – a result which ended their nine-match winless run.

Gattuso replaces his former coach; he spent a big chunk of his 13 years as a player for AC Milan under Ancelotti.

Napoli announced the news on social media with club president Aurelio De Laurentiis welcoming the former midfielder by writing: “Welcome Rino.”

Gattuso, 41, left Milan by at the end of last season after a fifth-place finish saw the Rossoneri miss out on Champions League football.

The former Italy and Milan midfielder was promoted from youth-team coach in 2017 to replace Vincenzo Montella and guided the team to sixth place in Serie A in his first season.

Ancelotti's dismissal followed a difficult two months in which his team went nine matches without a win in all competitions. Ancelotti also criticised a decision by de Laurentiis to confine the squad to a training-camp for a week. The players broke off the camp halfway through, refusing to stay in the hotel.
