Arek Milik amazed by passion of Napoli fans

Arek Milik is amazed by the support of Napoli fans.

The striker left Ajax this summer for €32m and has filled the boots of Gonzalo Higuain.

“Signing the contract was certainly a special moment, because I was signing for a big club," he told UEFA.com.

“So it was a big reason to be proud. I was delighted to move to an even bigger club than I'd been at previously, a club where I can continue developing, play in the Champions League and fight for the big prizes.

“I'm the kind of person who tries to settle in as soon as possible. It certainly helps that there are other Poles playing here – Igor [Łasicki] and Piotr [Zieliński] help me with the language.

“The fans are also very important – they're fanatical and it's hard to walk through the city centre without a photo or an autograph. You can see how fanatical they are, football means the world to many of them."
