Angry Napoli fans boo Osimhen


Napoli fans could not hide their frustration in a 3-0 home loss to Atalanta, and they vehemently booed their top striker Victor Osimhen and the other players after the final whistle.

It was another game to forget for the defending Serie A champions, who suffered a heavy home defeat against direct rivals Atalanta on Saturday.

The visitors scored twice in the first half through Aleksei Miranchuk and Gianluca Scamacca, while Teun Koopmeiners bagged the third in the second half after coming off the bench as a substitute.

The Stadio Maradona was sold out, and even though many supporters left before the final whistle, the remaining crowd heavily booed their players at the end of the match.

Napoli have had three coaches this season: Rudi Garcia, Walter Mazzarri, and Francesco Calzona. However, results have been poor for all of them.

The Partenopei have earned 45 points in 30 matches and currently sit 7th in the Serie A table, nine points below a Champions League placement.

Napoli coach Francesco Calzona admits the Partenopei are ‘fragile’ and insists defence is not the main problem.

The Partenopei boss spoke to DAZN after a 3-0 home loss at the Stadio Maradona. Napoli’s loss means their hopes to qualify for next season’s Champions League are practically over as they are nine points below 4th-placed Bologna, but the Rossoblu have a game in hand.

“There are merits from a strong side, but also our demerits. We are fragile and it’s not okay.

 “We have fewer chances to qualify for the Champions League, but we must continue looking forward and improve. The problem is not the defensive line; the whole team is struggling.

 “Everyone is aware of Napoli’s issues. Three coaches and many players have changed, and they would have needed a more linear situation. This is why they haven’t been effective much. There is an enormous difference from last season, but unfortunately, we can do nothing about it.”
