Napoli president De Laurentiis: Edo will now take charge

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis insists he's taking a step back from the day-to-day running of the club.

Speaking with the Corriere dello Sport, De Laurentiis declared he wanted to "stay a lifetime with (Carlo) Ancelotti".

And he also stated he had entrusted the running of the club to his son Edo because he, after so many years, wants to devote himself more to cinema and TV.

De Laurentiis also said: "The real goal is the Champions League, then if one manages to win the championship ... but they are 38 matches and not 13. But to win the Scudetto does not help me do more, with the Champions League I can buy important players."
