Napoli coach Ancelotti unhappy with ritiro orders

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti admits he's unhappy having his squad in ritiro.

The decision made by president Aurelio de Laurentiis was made ahead of their Champions League clash with RB Salzburg.

Ancelotti said, “We've got a match that may allow us to qualify from the group stage in the Champions League. It won't be easy, though. We've seen how difficult it was to win in Salzburg.

“The rest are small details; you may agree or disagree. If you ask me what I think, I will say that I don't agree with the decision made by the club. However, the coach must be the coach. These are the decisions that are taken by the club.

“The President called me a few moments ago to wish me good luck. Nothing has changed, the decision has been made by the club, who are rightly worried, just like we are. But regarding the importance of the match tomorrow, it's really just a detail."
