NYC Mayor backs Napoli

Napoli have an unexpected supporter in Saturday’s Scudetto showdown with Juventus – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio!

The 109th Mayor of NYC is proud of his Italian roots and took to Twitter in order to urge his fellow citizens of the Big Apple to cheer on Maurizio Sarri’s men.

“Soccer fans, watch for Napoli to emerge as the undisputed greatest team in Italy this Saturday. #ForzaNapoliSempre #JuveNapoli

“Without Andrea Pirlo, the Bianconeri are toothless vs Napoli. Juventus’ loss is NYCFC’s gain!”
