Napoli hero Careca has insisted that Mauro Icardi ‘can go to hell’ if he does not want to join, while backing Arkadiusz Milik to reach 30 goals this season.
Napoli have reportedly given Icardi until Thursday to accept their offer, prompting Careca to hit out at how the Inter striker has made his former club wait.
“Are we really still waiting for his answer? If he doesn’t want to come, he can go to hell,” the 58-year-old told Il Mattino.
“Has he understood what Napoli are about, what the San Paolo is, who the Azzurri fans are?
“Does he realise that scoring goals with that shirt isn’t worth the world? If he doesn’t want to come, it’s better if he doesn’t.
“If I was at Napoli, I wouldn’t even waste another second on him.”
In the meantime, the Partenopei already have a No 9 on their books in Milik, whom the Brazilian is expecting big things from.
“Napoli already have a good No 9. Milik can reach 30 goals. He has good positioning, he finishes well and moves with substance.
“He has everything that’s needed in a centre-forward.”
Careca scored 96 goals in 221 appearances for Napoli between 1987 and 1993.
During that time, he played alongside Diego Maradona at the San Paolo, winning a Scudetto and the UEFA Cup.
