Nocerino ready for Naples return

Sunday's Stadio San Paolo clash between Napoli and Milan will be an emotional one for Antonio Nocerino.

The Rossoneri midfielder was born in Naples in April 1985 and grew up supporting his hometown club.

"The San Paolo always brings up emotions for Nocerino," his agent, Marco Sommella, told Radio CRC.

"Playing against Napoli is always a special game for Antonio because he is a son of the city, a Napoli fan.

"However, he's an experienced player and a professional. He knows that he will have to give his best against them."

The Italian international was linked with a summer move to Napoli while he was still on Palermo's books.

However, he joined Milan on transfer deadline day for just €500,000 as the Rosanero would have lost him on a Bosman next summer.
