Liverpool fans react as Napoli boss fires bizarre criticism

Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to some bizarre criticism from a Champions League rival, as the Napoli president took a swipe at the city of Liverpool.

Liverpool have gotten off to a brilliant start to this season, but the defeat in Naples was undoubtedly the low point of the season so far.

The Reds were outplayed, outclassed and outfought as Lorenzo Insigne scored a late winner for their group C rivals, and the Italians are clearly confident ahead of their trip to Merseyside later in the competition.

“You’d have to be crazy not to be happy in Naples,” Napoli club president Aurelio De Laurentiis said about his players.

“These kids (the players) have to wake up, train and they’re done for the day. We pay them to have fun.

“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.”

Needless to say, Liverpool fans haven’t taken too kindly to what is a rather bizarre dig at their city, and the atmosphere at Anfield will be electric when Napoli come to town on December 11.

The Reds will be hoping to pick up six points from their next two fixtures as they face group underdogs Red Star Belgrade both home and away, and the visit of Napoli on matchday six could well decide the fate of group C.
