Mario Rui: 'Sarri deseves nice reception'

Mario Rui has encouraged the San Paolo to give Maurizio Sarri a “very nice reception” when the former coach returns to Napoli as the Juventus coach.

He returned to Italy last summer, to take over rivals Juventus, but Mario Rui goes a long way back with the coach and said he hopes he will be “welcome” on Sunday.

Napoli and Inter have reportedly agreed a fee for Matteo Politano, but the player would still prefer a move to Roma, claims Il Corriere dello Sport.

The 26-year-old was visibly distraught at the breakdown of his move to the capital, and hopes that a deal can still be agreed between the two clubs.
