Zuniga: Napoli is my home

The 27-year-old defender, who recently inked a contract extension at the San Paolo, says his love for life in Naples was behind his decision to stay put
Juan Zuniga has described Napoli as his home after putting pen to paper on a contract until 2019 with the club.

The 27-year-old has been at the San Paolo since 2009 but was the subject of interest from Juventus over the course of the summer.

However, the Colombian soon committed his future to the Partenopei and has spoken of his happiness with life at Rafa Benitez's side.

"I'm happy to have renewed my deal with this club," he told Radio Kiss Kiss. "I'm happy here and I consider it my home.

"I want to keep doing well in order to pay back the faith of the club and its fans."

Zuniga, who joined the club from Siena in 2009, started the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday.
