Napoli President Throws Tantrum At Fixture Draw, Rides Off Into Sunset On Stranger’s Scooter (Video)

By Chris Wright

In which, with only the first few games pulled out of the hat, Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis storms out of the Serie A fixture draw all guns blazing – swearing at his fellow club presidents, claiming that the FIGC had fiddled the draw to smother Napoli, vowing to ‘return to cinema’ (he made his millions in film production) and threatening to tear up his Italian citizenship – before commandeering a stranger’s Vespa and pootling off into the sunset…

Now, far be it from us to cast aspersions as to whether De Laurentiis may be certifiably insane – but this is the guy who also thought that parading new signing Gokhan Inler around in a rubber lion mask was a good idea.

That said, this is Italian football we’re talking about, so the likelihood of everybody being out to swindle Napoli for one reason or another is actually really rather probable.

    love this man, the greatest “mad” football president, way more entertaining than the Palermo chief “let’s talk about Pastore everyday” Zamparini
