Former Napoli player Marcos Llorente has given an interview to AS in which he talks about his time with the Azzurri and his relationship with Carlo Ancelotti, his coach at the time. He also talks about the real reasons why he was sacked by Aurelio De Laurentiis.
“What did I think of Napoli? Wonderful. Ancelotti welcomed me, which I didn’t expect. Time is money, and yet a prestigious coach like him offered me dinner at the hotel with his son Davide as soon as I arrived in Naples. Ancelotti is an impressive coach, and I learned a lot from him. It was a pity that De Laurentiis wanted to send us into retirement as a punishment, and we refused. Ancelotti sided with us and was sacked,” said Marcos Llorente.
