Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has sent a warning to UEFA ahead of his side’s trip to Catalonia to take on FC Barcelona. The two teams will face each other at the Nou Camp on August 7 in the second leg of the round of 16 in the Champion League. De Laurentiis is weary of the recent corona developments in the city of Barcelona.

After the lockdown in Spain was lifted it appeared that the coronavirus would slowly fade out. However, in recent weeks there has been a new peak in infections in Barcelona and that has resulted in the Spanish government installing a new lockdown in the city Barcelona. Despite the new regulations, the UEFA has no plans of rescheduling the game.

And this has angered De Laurentiis. “They’re like those three monkeys,” De Laurentiis told Sky Sport Italia about European football’s governing body, “I don’t see, I don’t speak, I don’t listen. I hope nothing happens to us in Barcelona. If it does, all hell will break loose.” The first match between Barcelona and Napoli ended in a 1-1 draw in Naples.
