Blatter: 'Everyone must see Napoli!'

FIFA President Sepp Blatter claims “seeing Napoli at the San Paolo is an experience everyone who loves football ought to have.”

Blatter spoke to newspaper Il Mattino and praised the incredible atmosphere around the Partenopei.

“In Naples, football is passion, football is a religion. I have always been touched by the warmth of the San Paolo crowd, as the Neapolitans are extraordinary fans and bring so much to their team.

“Seeing Napoli play at the San Paolo is an experience everyone who loves football ought to have.”

President Aurelio De Laurentiis has been at the forefront of the push for Financial Fair Play, as Napoli were in Serie C just eight years ago and are now challenging Juventus for the Scudetto with balanced books.

“I was very pleased to see Napoli return to the top five Italian teams. President De Laurentiis and his staff are doing great work. Napoli can also become one of the big clubs in Europe and Edinson Cavani is one of the best strikers in the world.”
