Napoli president De Laurentiis apologises to fans for Sampdoria defeat

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has apologised to fans after Sunday's defeat to Sampdoria.

Samp thumped Napoli 3-0.

"I've always said that the first games would be ones of settling in and getting to grips for our Coach, who has been out of Italy for several years," the president told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Ancelotti has won lots of trophies, but when you change it's like starting over every time.

“I apologise to the fans who want to win everything and immediately, but they had a good taste in their mouths with our first two victories.

“I was expecting a bump along the way, knowing that seven or nine games were needed for us to settle.

“There are new players who do not know Ancelotti's methods or even Sarri's. It's been said that Carlo took some of 'Sarrismo', but these are things for journalists.

“The Coach simply needs time to set the team up to his liking. After that are our opponents, who must always be considered."
