Elseid Hysaj’s agent confirms “he could have gone to Chelsea”, and “we’ll ask for a transfer in January” if Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t have faith in him.
The Albanian full-back has fallen out of favour this season, and his representative is unhappy given he could have left in the summer.
“He could have gone with [Maurizio] Sarri to Chelsea, but Ancelotti blocked everything,” Mario Giuffredi fumed on Radio Marte.
“He even publicly said recently that he was counting on him for this last period, but the facts say that in the last four games, Hysaj has only played one.
“Therefore that probably means he’s not too important for the Coach. If Ancelotti no longer considers him a starter, and wants to remove the disturbance, we’ll do it.
“Hysaj doesn’t deserve this bad treatment, considering how much he’s given Napoli in the last three years, and also because it’s professionally correct to be clear in life.
“Maybe it’s just a transitional phase, but every Coach makes his choices and it’s right that’s the case. So if Hysaj has become fourth choice it’s only right they communicate that to us.
“If this is a transitional phase we’ll soon see Hysaj as a starter again, or at the very least playing more consistently, but if Hysaj is no longer valued by the Coach we’ll ask for a transfer in January.”
