Giovanni Di Lorenzo praised the focus of Napoli’s squad of players ahead of their clash in Coppa Italia against Atalanta.
In spite of a period of considerable unrest, Gli Azzurri’s players confirm that they remain focused on their tasks. Defender Giovanni Di Lorenzo was the first to echo the sentiment saying that the team has been preparing at maximum intensity for the match in the semi-final of Coppa Italia.
Di Lorenzo joined Napoli in 2019 for a fee of €8 million, previously having played for Empoli. The defender has made 51 appearances for the Partenopei side until the present, quickly becoming one of the team’s most dependable defensive choices.
Of course, the defender’s comment comes at a time when many rumors are swirling around the club, particularly the fate of manager Gennaro Gattuso. In spite of having won the Italian Cup last season, the former midfielder looks to have fallen out with Napoli’s hierarchy.
It has been speculated that he could be replaced in the near future. The club’s board has already taken the decision not to offer Gattuso a new contract at this time in spite of the fact that the deal had previously been negotiated for a lengthy period of time.
