As Velasco said, you have to change when things are going well. Not when it’s too late. Napoli has a clear project no matter what the field says
President of Naples Aurelio De Laurentiis
We recommend 21-year-old Kvaratskhelia to watch his match against Spain last year. Definitely better than the usual “best” videos in which even Chavez might look like a footballer. Kvaratskhelia has achieved great success. After all, the poll in Naples (excellent Maurizio Micheli) has already shown that he has a long view on many occasions, most recently on the occasion of the Anguisha hunt. It must be admitted that Giuntoli bought players a year and a half ago and that only Gattuso’s management made a mistake for people who had another job. Two above all: Rahmani and Lobotka. We still remember the sarcastic laugh when – even before his introduction – Spalletti’s comments were reported that he wanted to task Lobotka with the midfield keys. Having a coach is important for something in the football team and Spalletti ended up cementing the work of the sporting director who also worked hard to bring the Calabria coach to Napoli.
The question is: How, Napoli are fighting for the Scudetto and you are talking about the transfer market? It’s not like we’re talking about the transfer market. We say that despite what has always been said in Naples, the company has a project and how. And it always will be. Even in the dark moments when I was forced to stay out of the Champions League for two years. For years, many Napoli fans have been filling their mouths with phrases like “It’s not a club, it’s a nougat attitude”. Oh, what would a Naples be if they could at least count on an adult environment. We dare not say cleverly.
Despite a two-year delay, De Laurentiis continues to renew, which he postponed for far too long. Which led to the outbreak of the rebellion. In seven matches, Insigne will receive Napoli and Italy. And it’s very likely that Mertens will do that, too. It’s not the baby’s assigned name (best wishes!) that could guide career negotiations. And we’re talking about two players who were key to Sunday’s success in Bergamo. Professionals don’t think like fans. They work and know that an important goal would greatly enrich and compliment their career.
Napoli is a club that certainly experienced a period of uncertainty – a period when the fans paid tribute to the president – but it was short-lived. Vision was not lost. De Laurentiis realized that he would not have to become heavier anymore, that the demands of the market had to be met, and that no player was irreplaceable. He understood this on his own, with two years without heroes. But he understood it. Since Spalletti’s choice, in fact from the decision not to renew the contract with Gattuso, Adl’s newfound clarity has been evident. Which, fortunately for Napoli, leads the club strongly. He’s having fun, he’s making money, and he’s competitive. As Velasco remembers a few days ago, Italy’s problem is that they can’t win. He doesn’t understand that you should change when you’re on top, not too late. Napoli has already won this year, with 12 points ahead of Roma in fifth place. Unless the collapse is unexpected today, he will return to the Champions League. For the rest, we’ll see.
In this market siren interest, in addition to Olivera del Getafe, there is also the question of Osimhen. Therefore, as Corriere dello Sport wrote today, the mistake he made with Koulibaly will not be repeated. Napoli must become a leaner club and now more flexible. It is not necessary to move with the Soviet era. Above all, he should never listen to the box. It would be the safest route for football and economic failure. Kvaratskhelia is there to remind us that De Laurentiis has learned the lesson.
