Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti admits Napoli's emergence this season excites him.

Ancelotti is delighted seeing the Azzurri back in the Champions League.

"Napoli is a very exciting place. The people there show great passion for the team. Twenty years ago they had the best player in the world, Diego Maradona, playing for Napoli.

"After that they went down, but they are much better now and everyone is following them because they are playing good football and have fantastic support."
