Napoli were beaten 2-3 by Real Madrid on Tuesday evening in the Champions League. That didn’t stop Azzurri president Aurelio De Laurentiis from enjoying the show. He was even full of praise for the opposing team’s coach Aurelio De Laurentiis. He revealed that they were friends, and that the coach of the Spanish club is the only coach you can’t criticize.
“I really enjoyed the match. Carlo Ancelotti is a friend. I didn’t see him, I didn’t want to influence him before the match. Now he’s going to celebrate, which is good. I’ll see him again in Madrid. A great gentleman. Fans want to win, and if they don’t, they always have to criticize. But someone like Ancelotti can’t be criticized as a man, footballer or coach: he’s great,” Aurelio De Laurentiis told Spanish newspaper Chiringuito.
