As Gennaro Gattuso’s squad is decimated, Napoli has just 12 senior outfield players available for the Europa League trip to Granada.
Since David Ospina, Dries Mertens, Hirving Lozano, Kalidou Koulibaly, Faouzi Ghoulam, Kostas Manolas, Elseid Hysaj, Andrea Petagna and Diego Demme are out of action, there are only 12 regular senior outfield players on the side.
Indeed, Gattuso’s injury list is so long that he has to pack his travelling party of six young players who haven’t even had shirt numbers before, according to the official website.
Napoli squad for Granada: Meret, Contini, Idasiak; Di Lorenzo, Maksimovic, Rrahmani, Mario Rui, Costanzo, Zedadka; Elmas, Lobotka, Fabian Ruiz, Zielinski, Bakayoko, Labriola; Osimhen, Politano, Insigne, Cioffi, D’Agostino
The Partenopei have a huge Serie A match coming up on Sunday against Atalanta as well.
