Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said on Thursday that the Italian club s Champions League last 16, second leg game against Barcelona should be moved from Spain where there is a new wave of coronavirus cases.
"I hear a lot of perplexity and fear coming from Spain and they acting as if nothing is wrong. What does it take to say, Don t go to Barcelona but rather go to Portugal, Germany or Geneva ?" De Laurentiis told journalists.
Barcelona are due to host Napoli on August 8 in the Camp Nou with both sides 1-1 after the first leg in Naples in February, with the winner going on to the quarter-finals in Lisbon, Portugal.
"It they have decided that the Champions League is in Portugal and the Europa League in Germany, I think we can go to Portugal or Germany for the round of 16, I don t understand why we should stay in a city that presents major problems."
