Aurelio De Laurentiis was at a press conference with his coach Walter Mazzarri, on the sidelines of the match against Hellas Verona. The Azzurri president spoke in particular about the arrival of Jesper Lindstrom, who has been heavily criticized. The Italian manager is accused of buying players in areas where the club doesn’t need to recruit. His response was curt.
“Another thing I’m hearing: you bought an attacking midfielder when you needed an alternative winger to Politano and Kvara. Mr. Lindström played 23 games for the national team and for the club as a right winger, period. 19 games as an attacking midfielder, but more as a winger, then right midfielder 1 and left midfielder 3. Read on, but I’m sick and tired of being told: who the hell did they buy?”, declared the Napoli president.
