“It hurts to see Napoli on TV” – Corriere.it

From Sports Editorial Board

The former Napoli captain has not trained for ten days due to a family problem. In an interview with Dazen, he admits: “Unfortunately, he did not win the Scudetto. If I leave Toronto I will only go home.”

Lorenzo Insigne’s choice to leave Naples for America, and Mls, the destination Toronto, was as brave as it was inevitable. The striker, Napoli by birth, released from Club De Laurentiis, could not find an agreement to renew and the “change of life” was somewhat necessary, albeit with conviction. Uncle America For the ‘misunderstood’ captain in his own landHe kept this five-star scenario, with a hefty salary (eight million euros), a series of advantages for himself and his family and, above all, lightness of life in terms of pressures that played a key role in the decision. . The brave captain was greeted with great enthusiasmhe found players like Criscito and Bernardeschi in the same teamBut he has faced a family drama in recent weeks that has kept him off the field. It was Toronto, through a press release, that made the situation as known as possible (“Lorenzo Insigne is having a personal family problem and will not train. Domenico Criscito has remained supportive of Lorenzo and his family. Out of respect for his family, Insigne will not publish any further comments on this topic.”

Certainly not a positive moment, given the strong support of the Canadian national team players above all else Goalkeeper Westberg, who, having saved a penalty, gestured with his hands to the number 24. Toronto has also highlighted the dedication to its social profiles, also adding a big heart. This is a serious problem that the captain deals with with his family in complete secrecy. Trying to make the integration into the new life, including school, of his sons Christian and Carmine as normal as possible. His wife, Jenny Darwin, who left for Canada to expect her third child, as shown in several Instagram stories, recently disappeared from radar screens and her parents have also reached out to her. what happened? The reserve, which is also true, is total.

The “saudade” has already appeared and in the exclusive interview ten days ago with Dazn (so before the family trouble he had to face) it was crystal clear. Not repentance, but longing. “I miss playing in the Napoli shirt – he said – but I made my decision and I don’t regret it. I am the main fan and Napoli is my home. If you leave from here you will go back to Napoli. From here, it hurts to watch their matches and not be on the field, but unfortunately that is life. It’s a pity that with Sarri and Spalletti we had the chance to win the Scudetto and we didn’t succeed.Natural for a boy who grew up in Naples, now in his thirties, decided to cut the umbilical cord and face a new experience, still feeling a strong connection to his city, to the team he made his dreams come true with. In fact, many from Naples showed their solidarity with him in the moment he lives where, while respecting his privacy.
