Giuntoli: 'Napoli miss Ancelotti'

Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli discussed Carlo Ancelotti’s ban and how the club prepared their team to face Roma.

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, you can follow the build-up and action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

Ancelotti saw his last-minute appeal against the one-match touchline ban rejected this morning, so his son and assistant manager Davide Ancelotti will be on the bench.

“It’s disappointing to be without our commander, but Davide is there and we are relaxed,” the director of sport told Sky Sport Italia.

The last few days have been fiery at Napoli following a 2-2 draw with Atalanta and controversial refereeing decisions.

“We were on the end of a very serious error and so naturally our public statements were of condemnation, but behind the scenes we tried to leave the players protected and calm so they could focus.”
