Napoli appoints Gennaro Gattuso as their new head coach.


Napoli have confirmed the appointment of former Ac Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso as their new head coach.
Gennaro Gattuso takes over Napoli with immediate effect after the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti.
As a player, he has won two Champions League under Carlos Ancelotti at Ac Milan.
Napoli currently sit in the seventh position in Serie A table , with just five wins from 15 games leaving them 17 points behind league leaders Inter Milan.
Media reports revealed that there was a disharmony between the players and president Aurelio De Laurentiis which appeared to have reach a head last month when the first-team squad apparently refused to attend a week-long training camp.
In an effort to protect its interest, the club suggested in a statement that it could punish players, possibly with fines, promising to do “everything in its power to protect its economic interests, assets, image rights and disciplinary interests”.
Tuesday’s champions league win over Belgium club side 'Genk' was Napoli’s first win since a 3-2 victory away to Salzburg on October 23, their nine-game winless run piling greater pressure on Ancelotti.
“I would like to personally thank the club, its employees, my players, my staff and the president for the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience in a wonderful city such as Naples,” Ancelotti tweeted on Wednesday.
