Lorenzo Insigne will reportedly be punished for his outburst, dropping to the bench for Napoli’s trip to Genoa.
The forward vented his irritation at being substituted during Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over Palermo at the Stadio San Paolo.
Coach Maurizio Sarri said Insigne should “apologise to his teammates for the lack of respect.”
Now it’s reported Sarri has opted to punish Insigne further by benching him for Sunday’s Serie A visit to Genoa.
Dries Mertens will instead start in the 4-3-3 system with Jose Callejon and Gonzalo Higuain.
Jorginho could potentially be rested in favour of Mirko Valdifiori, while Cristian Maggio returns in place of Elseid Hysaj.
