Since training camp officially started yesterday I thought I’d open up a thread dedicated to the topic. I’ll try to post interesting news and video when I can and encourage you to all do so as well. If you have any particular requests or are looking for something specific just let me know and I’ll try to see if I can find it.
The most interesting thing I noted about the first day of practice was Ounas getting immediate time working with Mertens and Insigne up front. It could be a good sign that Sarri wants to try and get him acclimated to the role he will have with Napoli as soon as possible.
Here is some of the short-sided scrimmage held today as recorded by CalcioNapoli24:
Hysaj is missing. I think it’s more out of necessity than a future possible switch for him. I could be wrong but I don’t think he has the attacking skills to play fullback. KK would be a better fit there though he’s too important in the middle imo.
Any Leandrinho sightings? I don’t expect he’s anywhere near close to first-team-ready, but I’m curious to know whether he might be showing enough to go on loan to a Serie B side in the south (Avellino?).
