Insigne brother blasts Ventura

Lorenzo Insigne’s brother has blasted Giampiero Ventura for playing the Napoli star out of position for Italy.

Insigne played as a left winger in a 4-2-4 formation during Italy’s 3-0 defeat to Spain, with many suggesting the 25-year-old – usually an inverted forward in a 4-3-3 – looked out of his depth.

“But how can he play well if he plays as a wide midfielder?” sibling Antonio wrote on Facebook.

“Thank goodness that Sarri’s Napoli are his national team.”
