Ancelotti: Napoli's midfield the best

Carlo Ancelotti claims Napoli have ‘the best midfield in Italy’ and that Juventus ‘aren’t out of reach’.

Napoli lost Jorginho to Chelsea over the summer and are eight points behind Juve at the top of Serie A, yet Ancelotti’s side are the Bianconeri’s nearest challengers.

“Koulibaly’s one of the best centre-backs in the world with Sergio Ramos, Varane and those of Juventus, who are more so as a partnership than in their own right,” continued the Coach to Gazzetta dello Sport.
