Milik: 'Discussing new Napoli deal'

Arkadiusz Milik celebrated his first goals of the season and confirmed he is “discussing a new contract” with Napoli, but assured he didn’t criticise Carlo Ancelotti.

The forward found the net either side of half-time in tonight’s 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona.

“We struggled a great deal tonight, as Verona are a physical, tough and intense side,” the Poland international told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am very happy, as we won, I scored my first goals of the season and a brace too. We’re on the right track and must build on this.”

Milik had complained after scoring for Poland this week that he wanted “more than 30 minutes” on the pitch, so today he started and scored twice.

“I was talking more about international football than Napoli. It was only right I didn’t play at club level so much, as I had fitness problems at the start of the season, but I am in good shape now and raring to go.

“I am so hungry to play and score goals. I feel good now, I want to do what makes me happy and that’s scoring goals. We are talking about a contract renewal, we’ll see what happens, but I am very happy at Napoli. I can’t say much more than that right now, my agent is discussing it with the club.

“Now we’ve got an important Champions League trip coming up against RB Salzburg. It’s going to be tough, as we know they play with intensity and a high press, but we are ready.”
