Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti says he is angry at his team for letting a 1-0 lead against Juventus turn into a loss as he also claims the referee made some superficial decisions.
Napoli find themselves six points behind pacesetters Juventus after that loss.
Dries Mertens put Napoli in front in the first half after tapping in Jose Callejon’s cross.
However, things would change as a brace from Mario Mandzukic and a third goal from Leonardo Bonucci saw league leaders Juventus retain their 100% league record for another week.
A second half sending off for left-back Mario Rui did not help Napoli’s Course.
“I was angry at my team because we started strong and took the lead, but then started getting sluggish and allowed Juventus to regain their confidence,” Ancelotti said.
“I think the referee made a superficial decision. Mario Rui got the second yellow card after a good long wait to consider it. The two yellows came from the superficiality of the referee”
“We need to improve in terms of character, consistency and experience, but we did well even when down to 10 men”- Ancelotti
