New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio poses with NYCFC's David Villa and Chris Wingert

The mayor of the Big Apple appears to be a big-time soccer fan.


Bill de Blasio sent a series of tweets on Thursday proclaiming his support for Serie A club Napoli ahead of their match on Saturday against Juventus, even showing a little love for Andrea Pirlo and New York City FC in the process.

Maybe de Blasio can throw a little political heft NYCFC’s way – we hear they're in the market for a stadium in the five boroughs.
