PSG: ‘Napoli will be difficult’

Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi warns Napoli deserve “maximum attention” and sees Juventus as “one of the Champions League powers”.

The French champions have been drawn against the Partenopei in the group stage, and the Qatari businessman spoke about them at the European Club Association.

“[Aurelio] De Laurentiis is a great President, I really like him,” Al-Khelaifi told reporters at the event.

“Napoli are an opponent to pay maximum attention to, it will be an interesting clash.

“Cristiano Ronaldo? It’s surprising to see him at Juventus, and with CR7 inserted into an already very strong team, I think they’re one of the Champions League powers.

“As for Gigi Buffon, he’s an exceptional person and extraordinary professional, it’s an honour for us to have him at PSG.”
