The images of Napoli's stadium that will leave you terrified
It's beyond belief that a Champions League team could be playing their games at such a ground. Check out the drop under the seats.
Napoli's San Paolo stadium is in a right state. In fact it's so bad, as you can see from the video, that Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis said last week that it was a "toilet". The ground is owned by Naples' local authority, and it is currently being redeveloped, though far too slowly from these images. De Laurentiis, who also owns Bari, has threatened to take Napoli's Champions League games to Bari's Stadio San Nicola, paying for the fans to travel out of his own pocket.
Napoli were away to Red Star last night, drawing 0-0, and will host Liverpool in their first Champions League home game of the season on 3 October. It's yet to be seen if that'll be in Naples or not...
