Ancelotti safe at Napoli for now

Despite the latest setback with Genoa and morale at an all-time low, Napoli and Carlo Ancelotti are reportedly sticking together at least until Liverpool.

According to multiple sources, including Sky Sport Italia, La Gazzetta dello Sport, Il Mattino, Corriere dello Sport and more, President Aurelio De Laurentiis is flying back to LA this weekend and that means no decision is imminent on the coach.

Ancelotti was also rumoured to be considering his resignation, but that too seems to be off the table.

It suggests they’ll continue as they are until at least the Champions League trip to Liverpool on November 27, as that will be the probable decisive moment in their season.

The Partenopei topped off a dismal week with last night’s 0-0 home draw against relegation-threatened Genoa, where they were jeered off the pitch at the Stadio San Paolo.

This came after the team rebelled against club orders to stay in a training retreat, as they went home following a 1-1 Champions League result with RB Salzburg on Tuesday.

Napoli have announced legal action against the players, attempting to dock the maximum allowable sum of 25 per cent from their salary as punishment.

The fans also turned on their star men, particularly Lorenzo Insigne, Allan and Jose Callejon.

As there is a press silence imposed on them, Ancelotti and the players have not been able to communicate with the media on the current climate.
