Napoli training retreat cut short

Gennaro Gattuso announced that the Napoli squad had decided to go into a training retreat last night, but it has already been cut short.

The coach said in his press conference that following a 2-0 home defeat to Fiorentina, the team had proposed going directly from the stadium to the Castel Volturno ground.

It had been assumed this was to best prepare for the upcoming Coppa Italia quarter-final with Lazio on Tuesday and next weekend’s Serie A showdown with Juventus.

However, in a surprise statement, Napoli announced this afternoon that the training retreat had lasted less than 24 hours.

The players were released to go back to their homes, return on Monday morning and then stay overnight to prepare for the Tuesday match.
