Napoli president looking forward to Man City clash

Napoli have returned to the Champions League for the first time in 20 years and face City in their opener at the Etihad Stadium.

“It is a fascinating challenge,” De Laurentiis told Radio Marte. “We will enjoy a really great experience.

“I agree with (City manager Roberto) Mancini when he says it’s a balanced group.

“For us, it’s important having won (3-1) in Cesena (in Serie A on Saturday evening) because we will go to Manchester with more confidence.”
