De Laurentiis ignores Man City

Aurelio De Laurentiis warns Napoli to put Manchester City out of their minds “until Sunday,” as they must focus on Lazio first.

The Partenopei dive back into action after the break for international duty this Saturday, then face a Champions League showdown on Tuesday evening.

“It is going to be a difficult game against Lazio,” the President told Radio Marte.

“They are going through an excellent period of form. The match with City? Let’s think about Lazio first.

“I expect the team to act just like me, as we must put Manchester out of our minds until Sunday.”

The Biancocelesti have Coach Edy Reja, who brought Napoli up from Serie C to Europe.

“Reja is going through a second youth, as he seems to be reborn. He is doing great things in Rome and the way I see it also achieved an inner calm.

“Serie A has become much tougher and more balanced this season, so there are many teams who can fight for the top spot. We’ve got to continue working hard with humility, as that’s the only way to get back to where we belong.”
