CM.COM – Mertens leaves Naples in January, tears with Callejon: ADL wants to "purify them". The details


Dries Mertens and Jos Callejon were among the supporters of the mutiny and their stay in Naples now appears less and less certain.

TO Naples the air remains tense and what has happened in recent days is likely to have some after-effects that will affect footballers who have not yet renewed their contract, and in particular on Dries Mertens is Jose Callejon. As reported by the editors of, in fact, the clash in the Neapolitan home is still open and it is necessary to understand if it can actually return to the clear. For this to happen, however – underlines the well-known portal – there are different situations that must be defined: the president Aurelio De Laurentiis he must also be aware of his faults, those of a management, in some cases, of his employee-footballers.

ASSIGNMENT IN JANUARY – It is no secret that Mertens and Callejon were among the advocates of the hard line at the time of the mutiny, and also for this reason they could be "purged". After the heavy words in their confrontations pronounced by the patron before the first match against Salzburg, that thin red thread of the dialogue was severed. De Laurentiis tried a timid approach with post-Salzburg Mertens, Mertens had tried in many previous circumstances to make himself heard, without receiving particular attention. The feeling that the Belgian, already in January, can leave Naples, if ever after writing the story with the goal record set, it exists but is not very strong. There are so many sirens, previously they weren't even heard, now they are picked up by the Belgian with greater intensity.

THE TEAR – With Callejon, on the other hand, the distance has been clearer for some time: De Laurentiis mentioned a dialogue with Quilon, the Spaniard's agent, a few months ago. Then, a heavy silence that does nothing but portend a farewell, practically a foregone conclusion: the Dalian, in the winter market session, with Benitez and Hamsik ready to welcome him, is an increasingly concrete hypothesis, even with a fair balance for the Naples. In short, a double goodbye after so many years for two other columns that brought Napoli to the top of the Uefa ranking and to be the great antagonist of Juventus in recent years.
