Napoli president De Laurentiis aims bizarre new attack at Liverpool

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has taken a bizarre shot at Liverpool, as his side prepare for Wednesday night’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

The outspoken Napoli chief is no stranger to controversy and aimed a broadside at the Reds and Italian rivals Roma back in August, claiming they are breaking UEFA rules.

He has previously hit out at Group C rivals PSG also, notably labelling their £200million signing of Neymar as "vulgar".

Now, in an interview with Le Parisien, when discussing the happiness of Edinson Cavani, De Laurentiis offered his strange view on life in LIverpool.

"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.

“You’d have to be crazy not to be happy 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.

"They also have the freedom of living in an idyllic situation."

Liverpool face Red Star Belgrade at Anfield knowing three points are a must after their defeat to Napoli earlier this month.
