Naples isn’t there to shoot rockets either


Naples is experiencing a different season from last season, which ended with the historic victory of winning the first scudetto after Diego Armando Maradona, after a 33-year drought. The Parthenopean club, the next rival of a FC Barcelona that is also not at the level of performance it showed last year by recapturing the Liga, last Tuesday completed a humiliating elimination in the Coppa Italiana in its own stadium against in Frosinone (0-4 ), which opened the canopy of thunder.

Fifth in the Serie A table with 27 points from 16 games, 14 points behind leaders Inter Milan, Naples coach Walter Mazzarri was also charged in the locker room as was his Barcelona teammate Xavi Hernández after a few hours because of suffering the unspeakable to lose one. of the worst bottom league teams in history, Almería (3-2). Phrases like “I have to do something” or “let those who want to leave” in the upcoming winter market prove that the atmosphere in Naples is tense.

“I apologize to the fans for what happened against Frosinone, but this is not the end of the partnership. What we have to do now is look at each other and change our approach to react,” said the coach.

Rumors refer to a possible departure of players such as Diego Demme, Elif Elmas or Gianluca Gaetano, and it is necessary to see if the list is expanded. There are obvious signs of discomfort at the highest level of the club. Mazzarri explained that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis entered the locker room before the end of the match to wait for the players.

The numbers of its stars are not at the levels of last year Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (5 goals and 5 assists) and Victor Oshimen (8 and 3), in a team that has already changed coaches in November. Rudi Garcia, who replaced champion Luciano Spalletti in the summer, quickly made way for the veteran Mazzarri (62 years old), but the team has fallen since the change in mid-November in the Serie A standings , which moved from fourth place with a balance from 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses to the current fifth place 8 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses.

Naples and Barça will meet on February 21, 2024 in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium and on March 12, in the second leg at the Olímpic Lluís Companys stadium.
