And on Tuesday evening the Serie A side announced the former Chelsea boss has left the club.
The win against Genk tonight was the first in 10 matches for Napoli which spelt the end for the 60-year-old.
Ancelotti is believed to be on the shortlist for both Arsenal and Everton as they look for new managers.

Everton are looking for a new boss and they suffered a blow today as top target Vitor Pereira ruled himself out of the running.
After the win against Belgian side Genk, Ancelotti praised his side despite their recent struggles.
He said: “The qualification is deserved, this team has quality.
“In the Champions League we always behaved very well in a not easy group. It’s a pity we didn’t have the same performance in the League.
“In the international arena we showed mentality and courage, something that has not succeeded in Serie A so far.
“The fact remains that when we express ourselves as a fact in the Champions League we can compete against anyone even in Europe.”
