Emotional Ancelotti happy with Napoli’s strong reaction

during the serie A match between SSC Napoli and AC Milan at Stadio San Paolo on August 25, 2018 in Naples, Italy.

Napoli shockingly came back from a two-goal deficit to defeat Milan 3-2 at the Stadio San Paolo.

The first home match of the season was particularly emotional for Carlo Ancelotti since he also got to face his former team Milan.

Napoli’s manager spoke to Sky Sport about the comeback win: ”We had a strong reaction, and the team showed they believe until the end. It was a nice satisfaction, Milan is a good team, they play well, they struggled maybe to control in the second half.

“We had already played a match, and this was an advantage. It was, however, a beautiful match.”

Ancelotti was asked about the gap with Juventus:”It’s very early to say. But this match gave many positive signals: we need to be more alert, sometime you can’t come back in games like these.

“We did so thanks to the will of the player and the enthusiasm of the fans. It was a nice emotion, at the end of the first half; I told the team to stay calm but that we had to improve something.”
