Women: know your place

It might sound like a spoof of a British Pathe public information video, but it is very much genuine. The wives and girlfriends of Napoli players have been issued with a list of golden rules to abide by during the Seria A title run-in.

The eight rules were handed out to the WAGs by Jacqueline De Laurentiis, wife of club owner Aurelio, at a special lunch event for the women. The booklet was printed in sky blue and white and instructed the WAGs on how they could help turn their partners into champions.

Rule eight reads: “Great players are such when they feel that way, especially in their heads; make sure your partner always manages to feel that way. We are counting on you for these last five matches of the season: please avoid useless family tension.”

Napoli are six points behind league leaders AC Milan with five games to play.
