Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has formally parted company with Maurizio Sarri after agreeing terms with Carlo Ancelotti.
“I thank Maurizio Sarri for his precious dedication to Calcio Napoli that allowed us to give the city and all Azzurri fans over the world prestige and emotions, creating a style of football admired everywhere and by everyone.
“Aurelio De Laurentiis.”
Ringrazio Maurizio Sarri per la sua preziosa dedizione al Calcio Napoli che ha permesso di regalare alla città e ai tifosi azzurri in tutto il mondo prestigio ed emozioni, creando un modello di gioco ammirato ovunque e da chiunque. Bravo Maurizio.

That was the brief Twitter message that the President posted this evening to effectively sack Sarri.
The Coach had been undecided about his future, but after last night’s three-hour summit with Ancelotti, De Laurentiis effectively took matters into his own hands.
Chelsea and Zenit St Petersburg are ready to welcome Sarri, but he could decide to take a year out.
Sarri finished second in Serie A this season, setting a new all-time club points record of 91.
He also became the first tactician to manage over 90 Serie A points without winning the Scudetto.
