Napoli have confirmed that captain Lorenzo Insigne has pulled up with another thigh injury.
Insigne appeared on course for an early return,having resumed training earlier in the week, despite being expected to miss several weeks of action.
However, Napoli wrote on their official website that the forward was forced to stop training on Friday due to ‘a muscle contracture in his right thigh’.
The extent of his problem remains to be seen, but Sky Sport Italia reports he will miss Sunday’s Serie A trip to Roma, while the first leg of the Partenopei’s Europa League quarter-final with Arsenal is less than two weeks away.
