NAPLES – "We are the nineteenth team in the world, we have no debts with the banks, we are a virtuous model. Maybe we will not be able to beat Juventus , who knows, but with that turnover, ten championships I would have won them too. We often went very close ". This was stated by the president of Napoli Aurelio De Laurentiis on the sidelines of a conference in Naples.
The blue patron also deepened the question of the Saint Paul and the different relationships with the Campania Region and the Municipality of Naples: "I see a very active Region. I had said that changing the track was useless, I asked the president of the Region to make available another 15 million for the bathrooms and for the seats and it happened. Now I have to go to San Paolo for the history of the seats, let's not change them when we are playing ". On the relationship with the Magitris administration, De Laurentiis said: "The Municipality asks me 1 million and 800 thousand a year and I did not sign the agreement and went to individual demand.
I did not sign because the turnstiles money was not returned to me. It has created a stinging situation because somehow we never wanted to find a noble way to solve the problem with a handshake.
It seems absurd that the City never does the work and that if I have to invite the gentlemen of the PSG or Liverpool to dinner I should invite a dinner by bringing a truck with the kitchen inside and create something in which I do not see the situations of St. Paul".
The question of St. Paul
Aurelio De Laurentiis has abandoned the idea of building a new stadium in another area of Naples and its province. The Naples will remain at the San Paolo: "It is not the stadium that I would like – announced today the patron – and when I say I go elsewhere, I mean that it takes me 2 seconds to buy the land and make a stadium in 18 months, then I realize that the San Paolo is the stadium of Maradona which is the only important part of a Neapolitan football past and I would not forget it ".
The memory of the Naples of Maradona and the love of the fans for the stadium in the city have won and now the blue patron returns to the field for the San Paolo, launching a security alarm: "Since 1990 – explains De Laurentiis on the sidelines of a conference in Naples – nothing was done at the Stadio San Paolo. We find ourselves with a stadium with a ugly superstructure from an aesthetic point of view but also shaky. One million vines ever recorded ".
The reference is to the coverage of the stadium, built for the World Championships in Italy '90 and already criticized in the past for water leaks when it rains. However, De Laurentiis replied Ciro Borriello, the municipal councilor to the sports facilities: "We know the situation – said Borriello – and for this reason we have developed the redevelopment project for the roof that provides for the verification of the bolts. The work will start after the Universiade and there are already recourse for € 500,000. "
Despite the arrows to the City (and the praise to the Campania Region for having allocated 15 million for the new seats), continues the maneuver of rapprochement between the city administration and the blue club, although De Laurentiis recalls the question of the failure to sign the new convention: "The Municipality – he says – asks me 1 million and 800 thousand a year and I did not sign the agreement and went to individual demand. I have not signed because the money from the turnstiles has not been returned to me ".
Back in fashion, however, a futuristic redevelopment of the San Paolo, with the blue president who raises possible extra recreational football activities in the stadium and Borriello who opens: "There are unused spaces – says Radio Kiss Kiss – at San Paolo that could be reconverted with Sports Museum, a movie theater ". The Blues will therefore remain in Fuorigrotta, where Chievo arrives on Sunday. Tomorrow at the resumption of training Ancelotti finds many nationals. Waiting also for Koulibaly, who is among the 5 candidates for the African Ballon d'Or.
