Man City seek security advice for Napoli trip

Manchester City have held discussions with several clubs for guidance on security issues ahead of their decisive Champions League tie against Napoli, The Telegraph reports.

Six Bayern supporters were stabbed in Naples last month when Bayern and Napoli met in the Champions League. City officials are concerned about their fans welfare with 3,000 tickets allocated to the City fans in the 60,000 capacity Stadio San Paolo. Senior figures have held meetings with Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich and are weighing up security issues.

The fixture against Napoli is a huge game for City and a win in Naples could seal their qualification through the group. Napoli fans have a history of violence with three Liverpool fans stabbed last October in a Europa League tie. The ultras of Napoli are involved in running battles with plenty of clubs across Italy.

Tensions will be high in the Stadio San Paolo with the importance of the fixture and City officials are determined to stop their supporters from becoming embroiled in violence.
