According to some rumors Allan Marques wanted to go home to be near his wife who was pregnant.
De Laurentiis did not appear in the locker room, but left the San Paolo in a hurry. The rest of the leadership seems to have agreed to Allan's return home only. The Brazilian was asked to sign a document certifying the request to stop the withdrawal. It seems that the midfielder has refused to affix his initials and that he has announced his intention to return to his family. At that point Insigne – who until then had tried to act as peacemaker – and Mertens would have followed Allan in the withdrawal of the withdrawal. Gradually the other players also chose to disregard the decisions of De Laurentiis in one of the most grotesque evenings in the history of Naples.
