Lorenzo Insigne recalled some of his moments with Napoli and said that his departure from the club “didn’t depend too much on him”.
The 31-year-old Italian striker ended his long career with his hometown club earlier this year, moving to Toronto FC after his contract expired. During his 12 years at Napoli, Insigne scored 122 goals and provided 95 assists in 434 appearances, helping his side win two Coppa Italias and an Italian Super Cup.
Speaking to DAZN, Insigne first spoke about the things he regretted during his time at Napoli.
“I regret because we didn’t win the title with Napoli. We had the chance to do that with both Sarri and Spalletti to win the Scudetto but we didn’t do it. We were very close, especially with Sarri…”, he said.
“I hope that one day, even if I’m not here, that it will achieve this because of the fans who deserve it, the city gives so much to the team and doesn’t get what it deserves. I hope that one day they will celebrate because they deserve it.”
He has also spoken about his departure from the club, the difficulties that led him to now play elsewhere and whether he reviews the games when he played with his team.
“No, otherwise he will cry. I am touched in my soul when I see their matches and I am not on the field, but this is life. I have no regrets, I gave everything for this team. I hope the fans can always be proud of me.”
