Matteo Contini is delighted with his move to Napoli.

"I was lured by the appeal of the place and the fact that Napoli are one of the best loved clubs in Italy," the ex-Parma defender told Pianeta Napoli.

"To have the chance to play for such a side is an opportunity I couldn't let slip. It gives me great pride to be a Napoli player.

"I had other top-flight approaches and even some from abroad, but when I got an offer from here I didn't have to think twice.

"I contacted my agent and told him to do everything he could to make the move to Napoli happen as soon as possible."
