Giuntoli: 'Proud of Ibrahimovic praise'

Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli was “very proud” to hear Zlatan Ibrahimovic say he would like to play at the Stadio San Paolo.

The Swede will be a free agent when his LA Galaxy contract expires in December and commented he’d relish a return to Serie A.

Zlatan was even specific in stating to La Gazzetta dello Sport today that he would love to have an experience with the Partenopei, following in the footsteps of Diego Armando Maradona.

“It makes us very proud and means we’ve done well in recent years. Many times, Ibra has shown his affection for Carlo Ancelotti,” the director of sport told Sky Sport Italia.

“However, right now we cannot be distracted by the transfer market. We have to focus on the players we have now and getting results, starting from this evening against Verona.”
