Napoli bid farewell to Callejon

Napoli players and staff have been saying goodbye to Jose Callejon, who has played his final game for the club after seven years.

The 33-year-old’s contract expired in June and he agreed to remain on until the end of their Champions League campaign, despite not taking a salary for that period.

It was his final parting gift to the club he first joined from Real Madrid in 2013.

Callejon leaves after 349 competitive games for Napoli, in which he scored 82 goals and provided 78 assists.

Gattuso: 'Insigne starts if he's 100 per cent'

Gennaro Gattuso knows Napoli need a ‘great performance to get a result’ at Camp Nou on Saturday and said Lorenzo Insigne will only start against Barcelona ‘if he feels 100 per cent ready’.

Napoli prepare to face the Blaugrana in the last 16 of the Champions League tomorrow and arrive in Catalonia after a 1-1 result in the first leg at the San Paolo.

Gattuso expects a ‘very difficult match’, hopes to use the advantage of playing behind closed doors and points at the statistics to prove he’s not a defensive coach.

Report: Insigne will start in Barcelona

The latest reports from the Napoli camp suggest not only is Lorenzo Insigne available, he’s expected to start against Barcelona tomorrow.

The first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 tie ended 1-1 at the Stadio San Paolo in February and the decider is on Saturday at Camp Nou.

Insigne had been a major doubt, having pulled up with a thigh and groin injury during the final Serie A game of the season against Lazio just under a week ago.

He had bruising to the tendon connecting the thigh to the groin, along with a slight muscular problem.
