Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has made a weird dig at Liverpool ahead of the Italian side’s Champions League fixture with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Serie A outfit travel to Paris tonight to face Thomas Tuchel’s men with both teams looking to score an important win.

Liverpool, who are also in Group C with Napoli and PSG, host Red Star Belgrade and De Laurentiis, not a stranger to controversial comments, made a weird remark to the media about the city.

When discussing the future of PSG striker and former Napoli star Edinson Cavani in an interview, De Laurentiis told Le Parisien: “Can you imagine waking up every day in Liverpool? You only have the house of the Beatles, Abbey Road.

“In Paris, there’s loads of things to see, but the climate isn’t great like in Naples.

“You’d have to be crazy not to be happy in Naples. At home, I have the best view of Rome, but I’d always swap it for that of Naples, just like my house in Los Angeles. These kids (the players) have to wake up, train and they’re done for the day. We pay them to have fun.

“They also have the freedom of living in an idyllic situation.”
