Empoli president Corsi: I was all ready to sell Zielinski to Liverpool

Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi admits he was all set to sell Piotr Zielinski before striking terms with Napoli.

Corsi is pleased to see the Pole now impressing in the Champions League.

He said, "Zielinski is decisive in the league.

"In the Champions League, he had to play against Liverpool, when he went to Naples he had that alternative there, but in Naples they were good at convincing him, I have a bit of regret about him.

"I did not ask for a ransom, working for the interest of Udinese, who then made a deal with Napoli."
