Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne has recorded a video message apologising to a young fan seen crying during their defeat to Fiorentina.
The child’s tears in the stands as he watched his beloved team fall to their third consecutive Serie A defeat became an emblem for their current status.
There were calls for Napoli to print out the image and place it in the dressing room, so the players would realise what they were fighting for.
Today, captain Insigne released a video message on Instagram for the supporter, who was identified as Mario.
“Hello Mario, I am sorry that you were crying at that result. We can promise you that we’ll have a great season from now on and you’ll be smiling with us again.
“We’re waiting for you at the stadium.”
