De Laurentiis sparks Cagliari row

Cagliari have reacted angrily to the “poor taste” tweet sent by Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis after today’s game.

Napoli won 3-2 in the final minute and De Laurentiis wrote on his Twitter account: “I dedicate this victory to Cellino, Astori and Nainggolan.”

It was a barbed comment aimed at a January transfer deal that collapsed, as President Massimo Cellino rejected Napoli’s offers for Radja Nainggolan and Davide Astori.

Cagliari responded with a statement on the official club website this evening.

“Cagliari Calcio expected more from De Laurentiis than this poor taste tweet, but that is evidently a quality the Partenopei President does not possess.”
