Criscito harbours Napoli desire

Domenico Criscito has added Napoli to the list of clubs he would like to play for, when he plans to leave Zenit St Petersburg in the summer.

The 27-year-old has been consistently linked with a return to Serie A during his two-and-a-half years so far spent in the Russian Premier League, with Napoli and Genoa in particular listed.

Whilst today reiterating a desire to one day return to former employees the Grifone, the full-back has now confirmed also his interest in representing home town side, the Vesuviani.

“I will stay at Zenit until the end of the season, then I do not know if can fulfil my dream to play for the team of my land - Napoli,” commented Criscito to the Gazzetta dello Sport today.

“Genoa? One day I’d like to return, I feel at home there.”

The full-back has recently returned to the national team, on from having to withdraw from the Euro 2012 squad for becoming embroiled, but later cleared of involvement, in the match-fixing investigation in Serie A.

“Now I can recover what I had lost. I have to thank the Coach and my teammates, I have returned as if nothing has happened, even if for me it was not a certain path.”
