Napoli coach Ancelotti furious after Sampdoria thumping

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was furious after defeat to Sampdoria.

Samp thumped Napoli 3-0 thanks to a Gregoire Defrel brace and a stunning Fabio Quagliarella effort.

“We had the same start as the other two games. We were able to turn those around, but this time we didn't," Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

“We again gifted the first half with a bad attitude, especially on the opening goal. We went 1-0 down, got worried and started to struggle.

“I don't think we need to change all that much, we just have to start games with more focus. That attitude is unacceptable and we couldn't keep getting away with it.

“Our defence isn't too deep, as we press high, but the problem is the lack of pressing from the midfielders and forwards."
