Napoli could sell Zuniga

In disagreement over treatment of a knee injury, Napoli could sell Juan Camilo Zuniga in January should the right offer arrive.

Reports yesterday indicated that the Colombian wants to have another operation on his right knee, while the club are reluctant to sanction such a procedure as the full-back would almost certainly then miss most of the campaign.

Zuniga and Napoli at odds

Juan Camilo Zuniga wants to go under the knife again for a recurring knee problem, but Napoli are reportedly against the procedure.

Zuniga underwent a ‘clean-up’ operation on his problematic right knee in October of last year, to eventually make only six Serie A appearances for Rafa Benitez’s side.

Napoli confirm Zuniga sprain

Juan Zuniga could face an extended period on the sidelines after it emerged that the Napoli wing-back picked up a knee sprain.

The Colombia international had missed the Partenopei’s last two matches for unspecified reasons, but it was rumoured that he had been struggling with his knee, having previously had issues with the joint.

Today Napoli have announced that his absence has indeed been due to a knee complaint, which has now been diagnosed.

Benitez: Higuain is doing well

Rafa Benitez has defended Gonzalo Higuain after the Argentina international’s slow start to the season for Napoli.

Higuain was Napoli’s top scorer last season, with 17 goals in 32 Serie A matches, but the former Real Madrid man has failed to find the target in three League games so far this season.

However, his Coach insists that he is happy with the striker’s contribution this term.

Benitez: 'Not a Napoli tragedy if...'

Rafa Benitez said Napoli “have faith” against Athletic Bilbao, but “it wouldn’t be a tragedy” to go out of the Champions League.

The first leg ended 1-1, meaning the Partenopei need at least a goal at the San Mames tomorrow night to reach the competition proper.

“We have a lot of faith in ourselves and we respect both Athletic Bilbao and the San Mames crowd, but tomorrow night we will play to win,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

The 32-year-old then looked ahead to the coming season and picked out the names of note from pre-season work so far.
