Ancelotti 'understands' Mourinho gesture

Not easy to take 90 minutes of insults says Napoli boss

(ANSA) - Naples, November 9 - Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti on Friday defended Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who has come under fire for goading Juventus fans after his side completed a 2-1 comeback win over the Italian giants in a Champions League game in Turin this week. "I understand Mourinho. It isn't easy to take 90 minutes of insults," Ancelotti said. "He made an ironic gesture. It was nothing heavy". Mourinho cupped his hand to his ear, as if to ask the Juve faithful 'what do you have to say now?.
    "It's true that we have a responsibility as coaches," said Ancelotti, who also came under a barrage of insults when Napoli visited his former club Juve this season.
    "But these continual insults must end and I don't mean just in Turin.
    "It happens in all the Italian stadiums".
