Napoli president, Aurelio de Laurentiis, has vowed never to sign another African footballer again.
De Laurentiis stated this during a live-streamed event.
He vowed the club will never again sign another African player except that player agrees to not participate in the African Cup of Nations.
“I told them, lads, don’t talk to me about Africans anymore,” De Laurentiis said during the streamed event, according to Football Italia.
“I love them, but either they sign something confirming they’ll back out of playing the Africa Cup of Nations, or otherwise between that tournament, the World Cup qualifiers in South America, these players are never available!
“We are the idiots who pay salaries only to send them all over the world playing for others.”
