Napoli's Ancelotti reaction prior to sacking. Wait for the end....
A club statement read: "SSC Napoli has decided to revoke the role of first-team coach from Mr Carlo Ancelotti.
"The rapport of friendship, admiration and reciprocal respect between the club, its President and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact."
The win against Genk ended a winless streak of nine matches for Napoli and saw them advance to the last 16 of the tournament, finishing second in Group E behind Liverpool.
It wasn't though enough to save Ancelotti with Napoli down in seventh place in Serie A.
