Napoli football news – Jean Pierre Papin gave a long interview to the Gazzetta dello Sport microphones. Here is what is highlighted by CalcioNapoli24
“When I was in Marseille I wanted Napoli – says the Ballon d’Or ’91 -. They came as far as France to convince me, but Milan was also on me, and in Milan there was Van Basten. I wanted to play with Marco … You know how it went, right? “
On the other side is Osimhen. Do you find it changed compared to the times of Lille?
«He is physically stronger and much more attentive under the tactical aspect: before the last shot he looks around, he follows the action with intelligence. He needs space, he knows how to take them and quickly becomes devastating. Lethal”.
On the left Napoli attacks with Insigne.
«Great player, he has the shots to direct any match. And watch out for Mertens, with him on the pitch Napoli becomes a thousand times more dangerous ».
Will the next Italian champions come from Napoli-Milan?
«It could be, but there is also Inter. It will be a fight on the wire. Milan, however, seems to me to be the team with the most confidence: they have worked to open a new cycle and now they have it in front of them. The mix created by the club works, there are many young players but they have a big heart and it shows when they play ».
