Liverpool Warn Fans of ‘Dangerous’ City, Infuriate Napoli

Liverpool have warned fans traveling to attend the Napoli match against the city’s supposedly dangerous reputation, hinting that they could be victims of robbery, robbery or assault in the southern Italian city ahead of the opening match of Group A.

The club’s fan services profile on Twitter – Liverpool FC Help – has released a set of recommendations and directions on how to take a trip to Naples, including a suggestion to “not wear club colours” and avoid the city centre.

In addition to the above guidelines, supporters were also asked to “not leave their hotels to eat and drink”, and to “avoid seclusion in areas far from the port area”, which is the city center. Stadio Diego Armando Maradona is located at the western end of town in the Fuorigrotta district.

Liverpool managing director Andy Hughes believes the Napoli inclination could be an overwhelming possibility (via sky).

“Look, I understand that some fans will want to make the occasion an occasion to walk away from this trip. However, in this case, I would urge fans not to walk around the city alone, or wear the club’s colors while they are in Naples.”

In his pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp criticized the journalist who asked him if he thought Napoli was a dangerous city, accusing him of being desperate to make headlines.

Liverpool’s actions have attracted understandably negative attention not only in Naples, but in Italy in general.
