NAPLES DI LORENZO – Napoli continues its preparation in view of the first match of the season, against Verona in August. Unloading work and then, muscle awakening to return to having the usual minutes in the legs.
Napoli, Di Lorenzo: “Trust the Azzurri”
The new Napoli captain, Giovanni di Lorenzo, was interviewed at The Roma where he talked about various topics. He expressed his opinion on the Neapolitan revolution and told him about being the new captain of the Azzurri. Here are the words of the former Empoli:
On the Captain’s armband:
“At first I didn’t think about it because Koulibaly would be Lorenzo’s successor. Usually, then, the captain becomes the eldest of the group. But when the coach told me I was very happy. My teammates have shown a lot of faith in me. Now I have an extra duty ”.
On the big names who have left Naples:
“When in a squad of 23/24 people 6/7 go away it is a good percentage. At the beginning there was some suffering but thanks to the new ones and the young people who returned, we immediately started to breathe a positive air. A new Naples is being born. It is true that we have lost some strong players but as many good ones have arrived ”.
About Kim Min Jae:
“Is it integrating? Very good. The prom video went viral. In addition to being a strong player, he is a decent guy. Maybe he arrived with the lights off but he can turn them on in the field. Let’s not forget Ostigard as a reinforcement. And Olivera was also taken on the left ”.
Finally, two words on the Scudetto grid:
“Personally, I don’t really believe in grids. The field will determine the positions. But I assure everyone that it is one more incentive for us to disprove these famous grids. I remember that last year Milan were not highly regarded and in the end the field decreed them as Italian champions ”.
