Sorry we made you cry, Napoli captain tells young fan

ROME (Reuters) – Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne has apologized to a nine-year-old fan after the team’s dismal performance in a 2-0 home defeat by Fiorentina on Saturday made the boy burst into tears.

The image of the tearful fan with a Napoli scarf appeared during the broadcast of the match and was widely posted on social media, prompting some supporters to suggest it be hung on the dressing-room wall to motivate the team.

Napoli, runners-up in three of the last four seasons, have slumped to 11th in Serie A this term and have lost four of their five league matches since Gennaro Gattuso replaced Carlo Ancelotti as coach in December. Gattuso described Saturday’s performance as embarrassing.

“I’m sorry that the result made you cry,” Insigne said in a video to the fan, named as Mario, which was posted on several Italian websites.

“We promise that from now until the end we will have a great championship and you will smile with us again. We are waiting for you at the stadium. A big hug.”
