Elseid Hysaj’s agent has hit out at former Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti as he claims he crushed the defender’s ‘self-esteem’.
The three-time Champions League winner was sacked by the Serie A side after a run of poor form in December and replaced by Gennaro Gattuso.
Ancelotti had been under mounting pressure following a civil war between owner Aurelio De Laurentiis and the first-team squad but returned to management quickly at Everton.

Hysaj’s agent Mario Giuffredi has criticised the 60-year-old boss.
‘Ancelotti had destroyed his self-esteem,’ Giuffredi told Radio Punto Nuovo.
‘He had taken away all his security.
‘He didn’t do well at Napoli, otherwise he wouldn’t have been sacked. I prefer not to talk about the relationship between the coach and the players, but many players have been annihilated by Ancelotti.’
