The open warfare between club and squad drags on after the team refused to go back into a training retreat, interrupting the week-long stay several days early.

Ever since then, Napoli have been in lockdown mode, banning their players from speaking to the media.

Elmas: 'Napoli can win Scudetto'

Eljif Elmas insists Napoli “can still win the Scudetto this season, as we’re only at the start. Juventus, Inter, Napoli and Roma are in the running.”

The midfielder spoke while on international duty with Macedonia and is seemingly unconcerned by the poor start to this Serie A campaign.

The losses to Shakhtar Donetsk under Maurizio Sarri in the 2017-18 campaign and last season’s slip-ups against Paris Saint-Germain and Red Star Belgrade highlighted a mentality issue when it comes to playing in the Champions League.
