Napoli coach Ancelotti enjoying De Laurentiis relationship

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti says he's happy with his relationship with president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

De Laurentiis was determined to land Ancelotti over the summer after the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri.

Ancelotti said: “De Laurentiis? When he called me to Napoli I thought he was joking, but everything happened very quickly.

“The President and I had spoken for years, we'd already spoken when I unsuccessfully tried to take [Edinson] Cavani to PSG

“This summer we also went on holiday together. He's a President who has become passionate with time, now he follows everything and is informed about everything, but he knows how to delegate.

“He's a very frank person, very sincere and very funny."
