Napoli interested in Marouane Fellaini... for his 'lion-hair' | inside World Soccer

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis admits the club are interested in a move for Manchester United flop Marouane Fellaini by revealing he is a fan of the player's hairstyle.

Fellaini is on his way out of Old Trafford after just the one season and Napoli have strongly been linked with the Belgian international this summer.

De Laurentiis believes Fellaini's famous hairstyle would suit the club's style and make him the ideal midfield partner for shaven-headed Gökhan İnler.

"Fellaini is one of the names of our midfield, but he's not the only one," De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"His hairstyle could be perfect for the Neapolitan style. I like his 'lion-hair', I have introduced İnler like a lion, Fellaini could compensate his lack of hair.

"They would make a nice pair. Fellaini has long hair, and the Swiss (İnler) is shaven. Together they have a hairstyle that looks like a lion's mane and three years ago I presented İnler with the mask of a lion!"
