Ancelotti predicts 'downsizing' in football

Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti predicts “downsizing” after the coronavirus pandemic and scoffs at the suggested preparation required to resume the season. “It’s a myth”.

Ancelotti left Italy in December, after being replaced at Napoli by Gennaro Gattuso and picked up a new project on Merseyside, helping Everton turn their season around during his first months in charge at Goodison Park.

Allan to follow Ancelotti?

Everton are linked with Napoli pair Allan and Kalidou Koulibaly, as Carlo Ancelotti allegedly looks to negotiate with his former boss Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The Italian tactician might make a swift return to Naples, but only to discuss possible transfer targets for his new side from Goodison Park.

After a turbulent season at the San Paolo, Allan looks set to leave this summer and Ancelotti, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, eyes an opportunity for the Toffees to bring the Brazilian midfielder to Merseyside.

Ancelotti: 'Everton not self-isolating'

Carlo Ancelotti reveals Everton are “not really self-isolating at all” after one of their players developed Coronavirus symptoms and it was “about time” the Premier League was suspended.

The Premier League was finally forced into suspending its fixture list this weekend, but only after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and several players in different clubs either tested positive for Coronavirus or showed symptoms of the illness.

Hysaj to renew with Napoli?

Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj could renew his contract with the Partenopei, thanks in small part to Rino Gattuso’s arrival as coach.

Hysaj was a bit-part player under Carlo Ancelotti at the club, and it looked like a departure was imminent, with Roma interested in the player.

However Ancelotti was sacked in mid-December, and was replaced by Gattuso.

The Albania international’s contract expires at the end of next season, and Il Mattino believes that a renewal is now possible.

Agent: 'Napoli and Everton like Veretout'

Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout’s agent confirms “Napoli asked for him in January and there was no time to really negotiate, but I wouldn’t rule out a summer move” with Everton also an option.

The former Fiorentina player only joined Roma in July 2019, on a €1m loan with obligation to buy for a further €16m.

“I know that (Napoli President Aurelio) De Laurentiis asked for Veretout in January, but there wasn’t the necessary time required to really develop a negotiation,” agent Mario Giuffredi told Radio Marte.

Gattenaccio comes up short

Gennaro Gattuso’s defensive web almost trapped Barcelona, but Giancarlo Rinaldi worries it’ll be remembered as a missed opportunity for Napoli.

In football, there are no prizes for nearly. For about an hour it looked as if Rino Gattuso’s tactical web might have tied up Barcelona and delivered a spectacular triumph. It certainly wound Arturo Vidal up enough to get himself sent off. But, when your efforts to secure a success by any means unravel, you are really left with nothing much to show for all your hard work.

Lozano in stands for Barcelona match

Napoli are expected to leave club record signing Hirving Lozano in the stands against Barcelona this evening, effectively cutting him out of the squad.

The Champions League Round of 16 tie kicks off at the Stadio San Paolo at 20.00 GMT.

All reports point to the Mexico international not even earning himself a spot on the bench, so he could watch from the stands.

It’s the latest setback for the 24-year-old, who is Napoli’s most expensive ever signing from PSV Eindhoven for €38m over the summer.
