Napoli’s assistant manager Davide Ancelotti admits the club’s failure to land a silverware is one of the biggest regrets of the campaign.

The Partenopei laboured to a 2-1 victory away to SPAL, which further consolidated second place.

However, Ancelotti’s men failed to impress in Europe where they were eliminated in both the Champions League and Europa League.

On the home scene, the Naples based club could only settle for the second-place in Serie A and lost out to Milan in Coppa Italia.

“We put in a fine performance, although we went a little too deep in the second half and suffered for 10-15 minutes, but then reacted to get back on track. I think we deserve that win,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

The son of Coach Carlo Ancelotti was asked about Allan, who scored a curler today, yet continues to be linked with Paris Saint-Germain.

“He is an extraordinary player who had an excellent season and even earned his first caps for Brazil. He was used in a bit of a new position today, but did very well there too and we are happy.”

Napoli were the subject of some fan protests last week, as they crashed out of the Champions League, Europa League and Coppa Italia, while Juventus won the Scudetto with over a month to spare.

“There are regrets that we didn’t win anything, but the team can play and will continue to entertain the fans next year. We’ve got to improve, and I think with a few adjustments we can do that.”
