Naples in chaos, all in retreat tonight: this is how Ancelotti rebuilds the group


The news started to leak out late yesterday afternoon. After training. Reason for which there is to think that this time the players were the first to know. Today, on the eve of Napoli-Genoa – which will not be the Champions League final, but represents an important watershed for the Azzurri season – the team will be in retreat at Castel Volturno. Of course, this is an "ordinary" pre-match withdrawal, but given the times they run, it's news. Also because when the competitions are at home and are played at night, it is almost a custom to meet directly for the match. Not in this case. Because Ancelotti, who does not want to enter into the controversy between team and society, does nothing but ask his boys to stay calm and to continue to put more intensity in their training. Nothing more. Not even in the aftermath of the heavy match received by the company afterwards about the decision to withdraw from here until the end of the season.

Tomorrow Genoa, then the break will come and then Ancelotti aims to achieve full results to silence the bad moods, knowing that the waste of what happened in the noisy post match with Salzburg will be annoying and slow to dispose of. He, however, is the calm leader and knows that he has the pulse of the situation, also because the same players, after the rise of heads on Tuesday evening, understood that they had perhaps had an exaggerated reaction and said they were ready to demonstrate professionalism in field. Yes, because only in this way will they be able to regain the love of a warm square like that of Naples, but which is disoriented at this time.

The training reserved for subscribers has already given us some clues for tomorrow's match. Because in the face of some beautiful parades by Karnezis and Ospina, Meret worked separately, as well as Ghoulam who stayed to do therapies in the gym. Difficult that the two will be in the field, as they are in doubt Allan is Mario Rui. The Brazilian raced a lot and well in front of the fans who shook him a little, but then with the Portuguese he completed the training separately without doing the final practice match. Who knows if Ancelotti doesn't try to recover at least one in extremis, even if patience in these cases can be the best medicine. Out also Manolas, with Maksimovic (among the most brilliant in yesterday's training) candidate to support Koulibaly, while Luperto is a candidate for a place on the left. The usual doubts in attack, with Mertens that has been beaten a lot but without results with Salzburg and is now destined for a rest shift. Of against Lozano, who paired with Milik wants to confirm what was good to see in the Champions League. Insigne is not entirely certain of a starting spot, because in the last few games he played all the time and because Ancelotti could think of inserting him in the current race, giving space to Elmas and hijacking one of Zielinski and Fabian on the left.
