Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has taken a bizarre swipe at the city of Liverpool in a random attack.
Speaking about attracting players to his team, he bigged up Naples, but also took the opportunity to unnecessarily have a dig at Liverpool.
According to Sport Witness, Napoli’s president said: “Can you imagine waking up every day in Liverpool? You only have the house of the Beatles, Abbey Road… In Paris, there’s loads of things to see, but the climate isn’t great like in Naples.
“At home, I have the best view of Rome, but I’d always swap it for that of Naples, just like my house in Los Angeles. These kids (the players) have to wake up, train and they’re done for the day. We pay them to have fun.”
We’ve no idea if De Laurentiis has ever been to Liverpool, but it appears not. He will get the chance to see what the city is really like when Napoli visit Anfield at the beginning of December.
