Rafa Benitez likens Napoli’s transfer activity with swapping your wife for Claudia Schiffer
Rafa Benitez has likened Napoli’s transfer business to swapping your wife for supermodel Claudia Schiffer!
The club have been criticized by fans for their lack of movement in the transfer window, with Swansea’s Michu being one of two notable players acquired.
The Spanish boss decided to address the issue at an open forum with Napoli fans by trying to put a comical spin on the situation.
He took one fan aside and said: “‘Do we want to exchange our wife’ is like ‘do we want Mascherano’. We’re in love with our wife, I mean, our players. Do we to exchange our wife for Claudia Schiffer? It could be but it depends on your wife, are you happy with your wife? Lets wait for a response from the transfer market.”
His approach worked a charm and had the audience laughing, their angry mob mentality fading away with every chuckle.
