Borini on Swansea-Napoli

Sunderland forward Fabio Borini has warned Napoli they can expect a tough test as they prepare to take on Swansea in the Europa League.

The Azzurri are clear favourites to progress from the tie but the 23-year-old said a hostile atmosphere awaits them at his old home ground of the Liberty Stadium.

“Napoli will experience a red hot atmosphere,” Borini told Corriere dello Sport. “Even more so because the stadium is small, but it is also very nice.

“Swansea are a very technical team with a very proactive attitude, thanks to their ex-Coach Brendan Rodgers.

“Napoli must be alert because Swansea work very hard, but they have a stronger squad so should be favourites.”
