Lorenzo Insigne’s Napoli career is in the balance after his wife told jeering fans they “don’t deserve him.”
The local starlet was loudly insulted as he left the field during last night’s Champions League play-off with Athletic Bilbao.
He reacted with a sarcastic gesture, but it was only the latest ugly clash after a pre-season presentation descended into jeers and criticism because he refused to speak at the microphone.
The situation is deteriorating fast and Insigne’s wife Jenny reacted angrily to a comment from a Twitter user saying he was “just a player, not a world class one.”
“You don’t deserve him at Napoli,” was her response.
There is extra pressure on Insigne because he is the only Neapolitan in the squad and much of the time the only Italian in the starting XI.
However, that may well be too much for the 22-year-old to handle and he has been repeatedly linked with a move to Arsenal.
