On Wednesday, Italian football club SSC Napoli announced Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager via their official website. Ancelotti has penned a three-year-deal with the Naples-based club.

58-year-old Ancelotti has managed clubs in all the top five football leagues of Europe, winning league titles with English club Chelsea, French club Paris Saint-Germain, and Germany's Bayern Munich. He has also won three UEFA Champions League titles in his career as a manager; two with Italian club AC Milan, and one with Spanish capital-club Real Madrid.

Before joining Napoli, Ancelotti was Bayern's manager, joining in 2016. Ancelotti led the Bayern team to Bundesliga victory but he was sacked in his second season in-charge, on September 28, 2017, after losing 3–0 against Paris Saint-Germain.

Ancelotti's predecessor at Napoli, Maurizio Sarri took the management role at Napoli in 2015 and led them to a second place finish in the Italian Serie A in the 2017–18 season. Napoli finished with 91 points, behind league winners Juventus.

Napoli's president Aurelio De Laurentiis thanked former club manager Sarri on Twitter saying, "I'd like to thank Maurizio Sarri for his valuable contribution to the Napoli cause. He brought joy and prestige to Naples and Napoli fans all over the world with an entertaining brand of football that drew praise from all quarters."

Ialian language: 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.

After signing the three-year contract, Ancelotti tweeted, "It will be a great pleasure to share our passion for the beautiful game. Thank you for the confidence"

Italian language: sarà un onore condividere la nostra passione per il calcio. Grazie della fiducia
