Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti said has expressed his shock over the locker room atmosphere at Naples. The Italian says his club’s dressing room at San Paolo remains an unfinished construction site days before their first home matches of the season against Sampdoria and Liverpool.
Napoli posted a video of the changing room on their Twitter feed on Thursday, which showed unfinished walls and floors plus missing sinks and electrical outlets.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has been at odds with the city’s mayor Mayor Luigi de Magistris over the state of the stadium.
“I accepted the club’s request to play the first two games away from home to allow the work to be finished, as was promised,” Ancelotti said in a club statement. “You can build a house in two months, but they weren’t capable of renovating the dressing rooms!
“Where are we supposed to get changed for the games against Sampdoria and Liverpool? I am shocked at the incompetence of the people in charge of the work.”
Napoli host Sampdoria on Saturday in Serie A — having played their first two matches away from home — then open their Champions League campaign against holders Liverpool on Tuesday.
