Hellas Verona defender Amir Rrahmani had numerous offers, but explains why he chose to join Napoli. ‘They have the ambition to go all the way in every competition.’
The paperwork for the €14m deal was done in January, but he was left at Verona on loan until the end of the season.
“I will admit, I didn’t expect to receive interest from Verona when I first arrived, as I was in negotiations with clubs in other countries, but as soon as the possibility of a move to Italy came up, I dropped everything else,” he told the Corriere dello Sport.
“I knew that only Serie A could allow me to prove what I could really do. It was the same with Napoli, coach Ivan Juric talked to me before I signed and wanted a promise that I would deliver the same level of performance. I think I kept my word, as my only approach to football is total professionalism.
“I do care about Verona, but I had this opportunity to join Napoli, a team that have the ambition to go all the way in every competition. I grabbed it with both hands, but without forgetting the gratitude to the club that helped me get to this point.”
