African players must agree not to play African Cup of Nations before we can sign them, says Napoli President

Napoli President, Aurelio De Laurentiis has said African players must meet a condition before they can be signed into Italian Giants, Napoli.

Presently, Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen and Cameroon international Andre Zambo Anguissa are signed to the club.

Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly was another African player with Napoli but left this summer to sign for Chelsea.

According to De Laurentiis, unless African players sign an agreement backing out of the Africa Cup of Nations, the club will not be in the market for players from the continent.

“I told them lads, don’t talk to me about Africans anymore!” said De Laurentiis during a streamed event as quoted by 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.”

During the last edition of AFCON in Cameroon, Napoli lost Anguissa and Koulibaly as they represented their nations at the competition while Osimhen was not available for Napoli and Nigeria as he was out injured.
