“Napoli are the best option for him.

“He has character and personality. Even at times of adversity, he’s always come out strongly. He was born for this, thank God.

“Between him and Ancelotti, there was immediately a lot of respect. James is grateful to Carlo for what he did, he knows how to get the best out of him and that contributed to their great friendship.
