In the headquarters of Castel Volturno you can still breathe a very heavy air. After the decision of Insigne and companions of go back home at the end of the Champions League match with Salzburg, and after choosing Ancelotti to leave the stadium without talking to anyone, the ball went to the club that immediately responded with a couple of heavy press releases and airing the hypothesis of a fine ticket for players.
On the amount of this fine, the possibility of a deduction of 5% of the monthly salary of each player has been circulated since the beginning. In reality, as the Corriere dello Sport pointed out, Aurelio De Laurentiis would even be studying a much higher punishment with his lawyers: or 25%, as allowed by the collective agreement. The Neapolitan patron is in fact busy in a meeting at the Hotel Vesuvio (his headquarters in the city), precisely to define the amount of the fine to be paid to his boys.

At the summit organized by the patron, his trusted men would also be present: the CEO Chiavelli, the marketing manager Formisano, the sports director Giuntoli and the head of communications Lombardo. There is also a constant connection the lawyer Grassani, which has the task of protecting the club from the legal point of view.
While waiting for the official statement of the company, Carlo Ancelotti has meanwhile called his boys to prepare for the championship, which will be played at San Paolo, with Genoa. The team will therefore pass the night in Castel Volturno: a retreat that should be used by the technician and his players to find some serenity, after the strong controversy and the furious protest of the fans outside the blue sports center.
