Napoli have hit back at Barry Glendenning and The Guardian after an article referencing Napoli to Italian mafia was published earlier today.
Glendenning was writing about transfer rumours and had suggested that Napoli may be interested in Manchester United's Danny Welbeck. However, in explaining to readers that Napoli may be trying to lure Welbeck to the San Paolo, he offended an entire city, and nation.
Napoli did not waste much time responding to the Glendenning's comments, as an open letter written by the club's director of communications, Nicola Lombardo, was released on the official Napoli website.
The Guardian have yet to respond to the open letter, but many are anticipating the publication to issue a formal apology to the club and city.
