Agent: ‘Pavoletti needs time’

Leonardo Pavoletti’s agent says the striker needs “time and trust” to give his best for Napoli.

The striker joined the Partenopei from Genoa this month, but was substituted 64 minutes into his first start against Fiorentina on Tuesday.

“Fiorentina was Pavoletti’s first real game with his new teammates after a spell out injured,” Carlo Pallavicino pointed out on Radio Crc.

“Sure, he didn’t play his best but I don’t think there will be any problems. I think he’ll succeed in fitting [Maurizio] Sarri’s system, because he contributes a lot in the build-up.

“In addition, he can play others in behind and take advantage of loose balls. He’ll need a bit of time and trust, but I don’t think there will be any problems.”
