There’ll be see some pasty legs on show in Naples on Wednesday night.
Napoli have banned all fans, media personnel and even club staff from wearing belts to their midweek Champions League clash with Man City at the Stadio San Paolo.
The club have issued the ban due to incidents involving hooliganism.
Several Napoli fans used belts as weapons in the build-up to their club’s visit to the Etihad earlier this month.
Witnesses say the hooligans swung belts above their heads and used them as weapons to attack City fans prior to kick-off in Manchester.
One Napoli fan was sent to prison for five months following a ‘cowardly attack’ on City fans drinking at a pub close to the stadium.
The Serie A club have therefore banned belts on Wednesday night in an attempt to avoid a repeat of such hooliganism.
Kevin Parker, general secretary of the Manchester City Supporters Club, told the Daily Mail: “It’s absolutely crazy.”
“I know they have had issues with Napoli fans using belts as weapons but since when has that been a thing in England?
“Why, all of a sudden, should City fans be banned?”
The ban does not extend to managers and players so don’t expect to see Pep Guardiola clawing at his chinos in a desperate attempt to preserve his modesty on Wednesday night.
