Napoli players are demanding payment of the debt. De Laurentiis did not give them a 1 month salary this season.
The coronary crisis has affected all football clubs, but Napoli have particularly serious financial problems. “Gazzetta Dello Sport” writes in today’s issue that the players of the South Italian club have not received even a month’s salary this season.
According to our Italian colleagues, the staff of the club and the head coach of the team Gennaro Gattuso also work without pay. The newspaper writes that Napoli chef Aurelio de Laurentiis promised the players to pay at least 1-month debt by December 1.
Wage delays have created tensions in the team. On Sunday, some of the players after the defeat against Milan (1: 3) faced Gattuso. Many clubs in Italy have financial problems due to the coronary crisis. A few days ago, the head of the Italian Football Federation, Gabriele Gravina, called on the government to help the clubs. He said otherwise Italian clubs would risk bankruptcy.
