Napoli and Carlo Ancelotti released a shock statement blasting the local council. “In two months you haven’t done the dressing rooms? I see contempt for the club.”
The Stadio San Paolo underwent extensive reconstruction work over the summer, partly because the Unversiadi athletics event was held there, but also as part of a deal with the club to improve the arena.
Because of this, Napoli played their first two Serie A games of the season away from home, at Fiorentina and Juventus.
However, it seems an inspection was disastrous for Coach Ancelotti, who released this statement on the official website.
“I saw the conditions of the San Paolo dressing rooms. I am speechless. I accepted the club’s request to play the first two games of the season away from home so that the work could be completed, as promised.
“You can build a house in two months and they were unable to refurbish the dressing rooms! Where are we supposed to change for the games against Sampdoria and Liverpool?
“I am outraged by the inadequacy and unprofessionalism of those who had to carry out this work. How could the Region, Municipality and Commissioners disregard the commitments they made to us?
“I see contempt and a lack of care for the team, club and the city. I am dismayed.”
