Hirving Lozano excited to be Napoli player: And playing for Ancelotti

Hirving Lozano is excited to be a Napoli player.

The former PSV Eindhoven midfielder made the move to Naples last week.

“I'm delighted to be here and to have been (Carlo) Ancelotti's first choice," said the Mexico international.

“It's my big chance and I come with great desire to do my bit. Negotiations were long but, as soon as they showed an interest, Napoli were my first choice. Luckily, they ended in the best possible way.

“I've watched so many Serie A matches. It's always been a League full of champions and they've passed through here too.

“We have an excellent team. I'd followed Napoli before, now I hope to help them improve and do great things.

“I've found a good team who are working to improve every day. This club have a glorious past and I'm here to do the best I can and make history.

“I have a lot to learn and this experience will let me grow. I talked to Ancelotti about private things, family business. I had a very peaceful meeting with him.

“The Italian game is different to the Dutch one. I think it's better, faster, quicker and tougher. I'll have to understand Ancelotti's instructions at every training session, but that's what I'm here for."
