Napoli midfielder Allan says Carlo Ancelotti’s summer arrival has brought an air of serenity to the club.
Maurizio Sarri left Naples to take charge of Premier League outfit Chelsea in the summer and he was replaced by fellow Italian Ancelotti, who put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract.
The ex-Bayern Munich boss has made a positive start to life at the Stadio San Paolo with seven Serie A victories leaving the club second in the table, four points behind defending champions Juventus.

Former Brazil Under-20 international Allan, who has been an ever-present this season, has been impressed with the new man in charge and the calmness he has brought to the squad.
He was quoted as saying by Il Mattino: “He has a different character from Sarri, he transmits a lot of serenity, he is like that, he has formed a big group, everyone feels inside the team, there is more involvement for those who were less employed.”
Napoli, who drew 2-2 at PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday, return to league action on Sunday when they play host to seventh-placed Roma.
