“We know that we are not considered among the top teams on the Serie A starting grid, but this thing must motivate us even more. Let’s leave the winger alone, in my opinion we are a strong team, we can have fun this year, we are motivated to deny what the media are saying now “. Giovanni Di Lorenzo, captain of Napoli, from Castel di Sangro (retreat location), launches the challenge from the microphones of Radio Kiss Kiss.
The Napoli captain, who replaces Insigne, also remembers that “last year in the summer, no one gave him the Scudetto winner and the pitch showed more. So, let’s not think about the grids but match after match”. Di Lorenzo looks at the transformation of the Azzurri team after the farewells of Insigne, Koulbaly and Mertens: “With the departure of important players – he said – at the beginning of the retreat there was a bit of regret, but then strong players arrived and interesting young people, so the group wants to improve and give the best for this shirt. I don’t say anything to the fans, because they are always close to supporting us, even in difficult moments. We take responsibility for the growth of the group. Osimhen can take them on. , then there are Mario Rui, Anguissa, all together we make young people grow “.
On the new arrivals, Di Lorenzo talks about Kvaratskhelia: “I didn’t know him, but I watched some videos and I realized how strong he is. In these retreats he is demonstrating why Napoli has focused on him, he is truly a good player”.
On the assignment of the captain’s armband, Di Lorenzo shows pride, remembering Maradona. “It’s nice to have the responsibility – he says – to have the captain’s armband, and I’m ready to wear it. The great players have worn it here, including the greatest ever. For me it’s pride, since I’ve been at Napoli. , I didn’t expect to become captain, now it’s up to me to prove that I deserve it “.
