Roma President Expertly Trolls Napoli Counterpart Over Liverpool Claims

Liverpool news Champions League Napoli Roma

"I always had a suspicion that the real owner of Roma is the same as Liverpool, and if this were the case, the two clubs should not be allowed to play in the Champions League", De Laurentiis said.

With the Italian Serie A due to commence this weekend, presidents representing two of the country's biggest clubs have been going head to head over the sale of the former Roma 'keeper Alisson to Liverpool. "If he finds that little bird again, he'll find out we also own Barca and Bayern". I wouldn't have sold Alisson, not even for € 100 million.

The film producer made the accusation after he revealed that his side had made an offer for goalkeeper Alisson, who left the Italian capital to become the world's most expensive goalkeeper, at the time, and join Liverpool in a £67 million ($87m) move.

Claiming that De Laurentiis was perhaps listening to the "wrong birds" in Naples, it certainly does make for an interesting story at the start of another Serie A season.

American businessman James Pallotta, who owns Roma, also has shares in the National Basketball Association side the Boston Celtics, while Liverpool owners, FSG, own the MLB's Boston Red Sox, so whilst there might be a friendship between the owners of both clubs, there is no conflict of interest in terms of both clubs having the same ownership.

Roma's general manager, Mauro Baldissoni, also chimed in on De Laurentiis' claims on Friday.

"Perhaps we could suggest to him that he should speak a bit with songbirds, who deliver nice melodies rather than speaking nonsense. I'm glad you came back Leonardo in society and that the Rossoneri return to being competitive", De Laurentiis said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
