Insigne suffers thigh strain

Napoli have confirmed that Lorenzo Insigne suffered a thigh strain during Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

A statement on Napoli’s official website explained Insigne had “contracted a strain in his right thigh”, with his condition being “evaluated day by day”, suggesting the problem is not serious.

The forward limped off just before the hour mark at the Etihad Stadium, and it had been feared that he would miss the Partenopei’s top-of-the-table clash with Inter on Saturday, as well as possibly Italy’s World Cup playoff against Sweden.
