Milik confesses to confidence issues

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik confessed to struggling with self-confidence and criticism, but also advised Carlo Ancelotti on his ideal XI.

The Poland international spoke to Przeglad Sportowy in his homeland during the break for international duty.

Mertens is only one goal away from Diego Maradona’s Napoli record of 115, but his contract expires at the end of the season.
