Tonelli thanked Napoli

Lorenzo Tonelli has attended his first training session after returning to Sampdoria and thanked his former employer. “I will always carry Napoli in my heart”.

The 30-year-old has returned to the Marassi after six months back with the Partenopei.

Napoli had let him go on loan to Sampdoria last season and after zero minutes in Serie A for the Azzurri this term, they have decided to part with the defender.

He arrived at the Blucerchiati’s training ground this morning and has written a goodbye message to Napoli on social media.

“I greet you one by one, as is all of you were in a line right in front of me,” he wrote. “I leave you with the regret of not having given back the affection you have always shown me.

“A special thanks to my teammates who have always made me feel important and this has allowed me to be able to make my small contribution!

“I will always carry Napoli in my heart”.

Tonelli played 20 games in his last stint at the Marassi and contributed one goal.
