Insigne: 'Totti, Raiola, ADL...'

Lorenzo Insigne confirms he rejected Francesco Totti, explains why he left Mino Raiola and tells Aurelio De Laurentiis he ‘dreams’ of a new Napoli contract.

Insigne recently cut his ties with agent Raiola and was wanted by Totti before he turned to Vincenzo Pisacane.

“He sent me a message, but I calmly told him that I’d make other choices,” he told Corriere della Sera.

Lorenzo Insigne admits Napoli’s players made a ‘mistake’ for staging a mutiny and claims Carlo Ancelotti should have been ‘breathing down our necks’.
