The blue president’s euphoria: “It’s the culmination of a 33-year wait but it’s also a starting point”
Uncontainable De Laurentiis after the Udinese-Napoli match, the Scudetto obviously inebriated him and all the fans present at the Maradona. “Today is the culmination of a 33-year wait – he explained -, I said when I arrived that it would take 20 years for the Scudetto… we got there two seasons in advance. Now we need to win it again and we miss the Champions League. In the summer we needed fresh air and all my executives who brought about this revolution were very good. This is a starting point and not an arrival point, Troisi after starting from three has made other masterpieces “.
For De Laurentiis it is also “the victory of the city and it is for this reason – he explained – that I wanted to involve our audience despite the fact that we played away by putting the big screens here at the Maradona. I told the League that the TVs would not lose anything if this experiment was repeated because football needs its people”. A success therefore for all: “We are 83 million Napoli fans registered in the western world alone, we are spreading. I’m also happy for those generations who hadn’t seen the Maradonian epic and can now enjoy the Scudetto. When they told me I didn’t want to win it made me smile, but football is a complex subject and there are also those who fight against it. We went our own way, different respects the system, and perhaps for this reason it took a few more seasons to triumph but now we don’t want to stop anymore, which is why our jewels don’t touch each other”. The praise for Spalletti smacks of confirmation: “he IS a real man, who works with great awareness and self-sacrifice. I hold it tight. We start again with him because the project continues even if this has been a film season and in fact we have been filming the team since the beginning of the year: a great film will come out of this championship”.
