Napoli: Hysaj out of Genk trip

Napoli right-back Elseid Hysaj has pulled out of his side’s Champions League trip to Racing Genk tomorrow.

Hysaj was initially included in Napoli’s squad to face Genk, but the club later announced that he would stay behind.

Although no official reason has been given, Si Gonfia La Rete reports the Albanian preferred not to travel so he could regain more match fitness.

The 25-year-old has played just 20 minutes this season due to muscle problems, as well as competition from Kevin Malcuit and new boy Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
