There have been every year, and this is part of a delicate moment of the season and with some will and effort from everybody we can get through it if we want things to improve.

What is said, gossiped about… there is a harmony in the intent between the coach, the club and the players.

This is the way to get out of this.

The unity in intent is there, and therefore, sooner or later, we'll be out of this.

This is out of discussion." CASTEL VOLTURNO, ITALY (FILE - SEPTEMBER 16, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 11.

ANCELOTTI TALKING TO COACHING STAFF STORY: Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was sacked shortly after watching his side end a nine-match winless run in all competitions to reach the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday (December 10).

His side, inspired by a first-half hat-trick from Arkadiusz Milik, outclassed Genk 4-0 in Group E but the 60-year-old was shown the door just three hours after the final whistle, with Italian media naming Gennaro Gattuso as favourite to replace him.

Napoli finished second in the table with 12 points, one behind Liverpool, while their Belgian opponents finished bottom of the group with one point.

Salzburg came third to qualify for the Europa League last 32.

Both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport had reported before the game that Ancelotti was set to be fired whatever the result.

Ancelotti claimed after the game that he was still hopeful of keeping his job and that he was due to meet club owner and president Aurelio De Laurentiis on Wednesday.

But just before midnight, Napoli issued a statement confirming his dismissal.
