Napoli training retreat from Friday

Sky Sport Italia report the Napoli squad will go into a training retreat, but only for one night before Saturday’s Serie A match with Genoa.

The Partenopei were supposed to be in the ‘ritiro’ all week in the build-up to crunch games against RB Salzburg and Genoa, but the players staged a mutiny following Tuesday’s 1-1 Champions League draw and went home.

This prompted an angry response from the club, who are taking legal action and could dock their salary as punishment.

Fans were also furious and vented their frustration with insults during today's open training session.

A statement confirmed coach Carlo Ancelotti would be given the full power to decide on training retreats, taking the decision away from President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

According to this evening’s report from Sky Sport Italia, Ancelotti has opted to put them into a training retreat for just one night – Friday – leading up to the Genoa match.
