Pazienza grateful to Napoli fans as he prepares to join Juventus

Departing Napoli winger Michele Pazienza has paid tribute to fans as he prepares to join Juventus.

Pazienza will join the Old Lady on a free transfer this summer once his contract at the San Paolo expires.

"Pazienza spoke to Napoli, but it was a life decision to join Juventus," agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito told Radio Crc on Wednesday.

"Pazienza is grateful to Napoli for what they gave him and the club respects the player," continued the representative.

"Players do leave clubs in this game. Pazienza was disappointed that he couldn't continue his adventure at Napoli, but there were not the conditions in place to do so.

"It's a personal choice for a player to leave a side. The important thing is that he still respects the club he is leaving."
