Napoli defeat leaves De Laurentiis furious with players

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis was left fuming over their defeat to Lecce.

The Azzurri lost 2-1 at the Stadio Via del Mare with both sides reduced to 10 men and Edinson Cavani will be suspended for the big game against Inter.

"I feel truly sad, as conceding a goal like that at the death from Javier Chevanton is a sign of great immaturity," said the President.

"Evidently we are not ready to compete at a certain level and aren't worthy of representing the Napoli colours.

"When I said we'd finish in fifth place, I wasn't joking. We cannot have players get themselves sent off and put an entire year's work at risk ahead of the game with Inter."
