Napoli training retreat from Friday

Sky Sport Italia report the Napoli squad will go into a training retreat, but only for one night before Saturday’s Serie A match with Genoa.

The Partenopei were supposed to be in the ‘ritiro’ all week in the build-up to crunch games against RB Salzburg and Genoa, but the players staged a mutiny following Tuesday’s 1-1 Champions League draw and went home.

This prompted an angry response from the club, who are taking legal action and could dock their salary as punishment.
