Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis thinks the return leg against Barcelona in the Champions League should be moved to Portugal or Germany. ‘I don’t understand why we must stay in a city that has major problems’.
UEFA has reportedly asked for guarantees from the Catalan Department of Health and with Portugal and Germany set to host the Champions League and the Europa League respectively, the Partenopei patron thinks it’s best moving the match there.
“The match against Barcelona will always be a great match. This summer we played two, then we had a third in the first leg of the last 16 in the Champions League. Now, we will play a fourth” De Laurentiis told Sky Sport Italia.
“We hear doubts and fears coming from Spain. UEFA is indifferent, there is no one who knows how to run the shop.
“If they have decided that the Champions League is done in Portugal and the Europa League in Germany, I think we should play the return leg in Portugal or Germany.
“I don’t understand why we must stay in a city that has major problems.”
