Aurelio De Laurentiis: Napoli President Mobbed by Fans After Impressive Win Over Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma

  • Napoli fans praised club owner Aurelio De Laurentiis after they beat AS Roma
  • The win opened the Naples club's lead at the top of the Serie A log to 13 points
  • De Laurentiis has been an important figure in Naples for the club's rebuilding

In case it wasn't clear before, Napoli are on a procession to the Serie A title.

Luciano Spalletti's side have been near-perfect this season and it would take a huge miracle to dislodge them from the apex of Italian football.

Prior to their game against AS Roma last weekend, Jose Mourinho even conceded the title race.

With the win, the Partenopei opened a 13-point gap at the top of the table.

After the game, Napoli fans were buzzing around the Diego Maradona Stadium and why shouldn't they? Spalletti is well on course to guiding them to their first Serie A title since 1990.

Osimhen and Kvara combine

The combination between Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been immense this season.

The midfield supremacy of André-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Piotr Zieliński has been irreproachable. Min-Jae Kim has been a solid rock at the back.

This is all because of the shrewd business acumen of Aurelio De Laurentiis. The Napoli President bought the club in 2004, after it was relegated to Serie C due to bankruptcy.

It has been a long time coming, but he has overseen the rebuilding of the Partenopei under his leadership. The club could finally win the Serie A title this season - the first of his reign.

He clenches his fist and appears to cheer the fans on. This was just one victory against one team, so one can imagine what would happen in four months' time when they win the whole thing.

Spalletti's comments on Osimhen

Sports Brief also reported on the manager of Italian club Napoli, Spalletti calling Osimhen 'the complete package’.

The Nigerian netted an incredible goal in Napoli’s 2-1 win over AS Roma, extending the Partenopei's lead on the table to 13 points.

It is arguably the striker’s best goal since his move to Italy, having expertly controlled the ball before rifling a volley into the roof of the net.
