Valdifiori delighted with Napoli link

Napoli sporting director Pierpaolo Marino watched Valdifiori in action for Empoli in their 1-0 away win against Frosinone last weekend.

“I didn’t know that Marino came to watch me – I’m honoured,” Valdifiori said on Radio Marte.

“I’m very pleased that someone of his standing would come to see me play and to wear the Napoli shirt would be a dream come true.

“This year they are playing really entertaining football and it would be great to be a part of it.

“I’m a classic central midfielder and I enjoy playing in front of the defence – maybe that’s a position they need cover in.”
