Prospective PSG signing Ezequiel Lavezzi admits he found the passion of Napoli fans sometimes overwhelming.

The striker is set to complete his transfer to Ligue 1 this month for around €27m and hinted at why he wanted to leave the San Paolo.

“I don’t know much about the negotiations, as my agent is working on it,” Pocho told Il Mattino.

“I will always bring with me the affection of the Napoli fans, although it was sometimes excessive. Napoli really kick-started my career and took me to the international stage.

“Paris is very different to Naples. There is no sea, but there are many attractions and I imagine I’ll be able to enjoy my privacy more there.”
