In a surprise move, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says his club will not sign African players anymore unless they agree not to play in the African Cup of Nations.

During a live-streamed event, De Laurentiis yelled, “I told them guys, don’t talk to me about Africans anymore!”

I adore these players, but they are never accessible between the Africa Cup of Nations and the South American World Cup qualifying matches, unless they sign a document stating they won’t participate.

Former Napoli captain Kalidou Koulibaly is the defending AFCON champion, having led Senegal to victory earlier this year.
