Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has welcomed new coach Rino Gattuso.
De Laurentiis introduced Gattuso to the assembled media: “Do not ask me questions, for I will not reply. Not even one. We will have time for that.
“This is the time for Ringhio Starr - that can be his new nickname, Ringhio Starr!
“He needs no introduction, but he does need your help. I feel he has assimilated what he said under Arrigo Sarri [Sacchi, ndr], gathered up the leftovers of Milan and took them into fifth place.
“I thank you all, I'll let you know when we can meet for a long chat. Meanwhile, Forza Napoli, and we'll see you all at the stadium on Saturday."
On Ancelotti, ADL also said: “It seems only right to salute Ancelotti, who has been with us so far. We remain friends.
“It disappoints me, I read somewhere from a lady who perhaps has not been in football, that there were some disagreements and clashes with Ancelotti.
“That is not true, I've denied it many times. I am sorry things went like this, but often there are divorces between man and wife, still keeping a good rapport.
“We cultivated a dream together, we suddenly woke up, so with great responsibility, also not to ruin his extraordinary CV, I tried to safeguard him and say dear Carlo, the time has come to go our separate ways."
