De Guzman: 'Napoli truly great'

New Napoli signing Jonathan De Guzman is overjoyed at the move from Villarreal. “This is truly a great club.”

Although he spent the last two seasons on loan at Swansea City, the Dutch international was still owned by Villarreal.

“This is truly a great club, otherwise they wouldn’t have players like Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon on their books,” De Guzman told Voetbal International.

“Plus they have Michu, who I played with at Swansea, and Dries Mertens was my teammate in Holland.

“I played against Napoli twice in the Europa League last season and they really impressed me.

“I think this can be a great change for me. I can get the opportunity to play in the Champions League and I hope the team qualifies.”

The first leg of the Champions League play-off with Athletic Bilbao ended 1-1 last night, so the decider is at the San Mames next week.
