Hercules striker David Trezeguet says he rejected Napoli last summer.

Trezeguet joined his Spanish Liga club from Juventus.

The French striker told Il Sussidario: “I had this opportunity.

“I was interested to get to know an important place with a clear and serious project. I said no to Napoli out of respect for the Juventus fans with whom I have a special relationship.

“I have not been able to say goodbye to them well. I will do it one day in the future.

“I will also say hi to my former teammates and Andrea Agnelli with whom I also have a great relationship.”
