Ancelotti ‘outraged’ by San Paolo building work
Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti said he was “outraged” by the state of the changing rooms at his side’s San Paolo stadium following building work carried out by local authorities who own the ground.
“I saw the conditions of the San Paolo dressing rooms. There are no words,” Ancelotti told the club’s website.
“I am outraged by the incorrectness and inadequacy of those who had to carry out these jobs,” the three-time Champions League-winning coach added.
Ancelotti, 60, questioned if the facilities would be available for his players ahead of the fixtures scheduled for Saturday and Tuesday.
“I see a contempt and a non-attachment to the city’s team. I am dismayed.
“How have the region, municipality and commissioners been able to disregard the commitments they made?”
The ground, which witnessed Diego Maradona’s superb performances between 1984-1991, was originally built in 1948 and hosted five games at the 1990 World Cup before undergoing work ahead of this summer’s Universiade.
