Nothing left of Sarri's Napoli

Maurizio Sarri and Napoli together felt like a fairytale, but as they reunite on Sunday, Tommaso Adami fears they’ll never find that chemistry again.

Once upon a time there was Naples, a city whose people were so in love with football that the God of the sport himself decided to descend from the heavens to join their team.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis reportedly wishes he could sack Gennaro Gattuso and recall Carlo Ancelotti, who has a new job at Everton.

Official: Demme joins Napoli

Napoli have officially signed Diego Demme from RB Leipzig in a deal worth a reported €13m.

The 28-year-old midfielder had his medical on Friday and put pen to paper on the contract in Rome today.

It was confirmed by a tweet from President Aurelio De Laurentiis: “Welcome Diego!”

Demme was enthusiastic about the idea of this move, because although he was born and raised in Germany, his father is Italian and a passionate Napoli supporter.

In fact, Demme was named Diego after Napoli legend Diego Armando Maradona.

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik has admitted that “we all made mistakes” towards the end of Carlo Ancelotti’s reign.

Ancelotti was sacked last week, lasting less than two years at the helm, and Milik concedes the Napoli squad could have done more to give their former coach a chance.

“I don’t want to go back and talk about Ancelotti, but we all made mistakes,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Since I’ve been at Napoli I have never experienced such a situation. Our ranking in the table cannot be true.
