Napoli have announced Carlo Ancelotti as their new head coach and they have given the well-traveled tactician the task of ending Juventus' dominance of Serie A.

Ancelotti has agreed a three-year deal and will replace Maurizio Sarri, who led Napoli to two second-place and one third-place finish during his three seasons in charge.

'SSC Napoli is delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached with Carlo Ancelotti for him to become the head coach of the first team for three seasons starting in 2018-19,' the club said in a statement on its website.

It will be Ancelotti's first managerial job since an ungraceful departure from Bayern Munich in September.
