The president of the Italian footballers' association spoke of the case concerning Naples in view of possible fines by the club to the players.
"I don't know what orders were given by the president De Laurentiis and I don't know what is meant by mutiny, but the profession of the footballer is to do well the footballer, certainly not to sleep together with the others. The players of Napoli certainly did not refuse to work , since they took to the field: they will have time to demonstrate on the field what they are able to do ".
These are the words of Damiano Tommasi
, president of the AIC, on the choice of players of the Naples
not to respect the withdrawal ordered by the club on Tuesday.
"I do not know specifically the terms of any fine – adds Tommasi, on the sidelines of the presentation of the Grand Gala of Football – which will be made by Naples. I see players and a team that has trained and is preparing for the game. In Italy we have this strange habit: it seems that to play better you have to sleep together with your companions, stay together at the hotel, but that time has passed. As for the Aic we did not get any different feedback from the players ".
