Carlo Ancelotti Had The Perfect Reaction To Reporter Asking About Jose Mourinho
Everyone has had an opinion on Jose Mourinho's ear-cup celebration from Wednesday night.
After Manchester United's 2-1 win against Juventus in the Champions League, the Portuguese manager made his way onto the turf to rile up the Juventus fans.
The 55-year-old, who had a two year stint at Inter Milan, cupped his ear to the Allianz Stadium faithful and claimed that he wanted to 'hear them more'.
Some pundits have criticised Jose for his celebration in Italy, such as Graeme Souness and Paul Scholes.
However, Jose seems to have found an admirer in a fellow manager.
Ahead of Napoli's trip to Genoa on Saturday night, Carlo Ancelotti addressed the media and was asked about the Mourinho incident.
When asked, the former Chelsea manager cupped his hand to his ear and replied,
"Sorry, I didn't hear what you said..."

Ancelotti, who has guided Napoli to third in the table this season, went on to speak about the culture of fans in Italian football.
Per FootballItalia.net, Ancelotti went on to say,
"All of us who go down to the pitch have a responsibility and we need to understand that. That said, you don't get any pleasure from being insulted for 90 minutes.
"It was an understandable reaction; it wasn't vulgar, it was sarcastic. That can happen after 90 minutes of insults.
"I'm not just referring to Juventus, by the way, in Italy there's a general culture of insults. It happens in Naples and Milan too."
Great analysis of the situation from Carlo Ancelotti, who's Napoli side held PSG to a 1-1 draw in the Champions League on Tuesday night to go top of Group C.
