‘The truth will out on Quaglia’

Posted on 31/08/2010


Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has promised to reveal the reasons why he sold Fabio Quagliarella to Juventus. 

The move caused a great deal of shock last week, not least among Napoli supporters because Quagliarella was a hometown hero. 

“By now Quagliarella is the past,” De Laurentiis said. “But someone will say their piece on this question in the next few weeks. 

“I am always thinking about the future, never about the past.”

When asked about how he left his relationship with Quagliarella, De Laurentiis told Sky Italia: “We left it with him going to Juventus.

“I think that feelings for someone come quickly or they don’t come at all. Someone has said that in the next few weeks they’ll say their piece on this question. As a man of cinema, I don’t want to ruin the surprise,” he smiled. 

De Laurentiis then responded to claims that Napoli plan to make a last minute bid for Milan’s Neapolitan striker Marco Borriello. 

“He is a great striker, but I believe that we have many strikers, if not we risk leaving them on the bench and creating unhappiness in our dressing room. 

“Everyone must feel part of the cause. You can’t have more than 21 or 22 players. When I bought the club in Serie C, I wanted a Napoli full of Neapolitans, then I had to have a rethink and I made a ‘Maradona-style’ Napoli with many South Americans. 

“But we must be careful to grow without creating problems in the squad, in the sense that we have 21 or 22 players who must grow,” he concluded.
