Speaking of Napoli. Ancelotti is having quite a good start at that club. I remember there were voices about him being past it, but at this point it’s going well for them.


#2513

Yeah, think I have to ask for forgiveness from Carletto for doubting him.

It turns out Bayern players were just dicks, I really should have just trusted my instincts with that.

But cmon OA, what a crazy story. Does nobody have an opinion on that from the Napoli doctors??? I’ll never slate Arsenal’s medical team again


#2514

He is a pragmatic manager who is using what he has at his disposal in the best way.


#2515

The story came from a Dutch paper and I’ve read it a couple of days ago and reacted to it on a Dutch forum. But it’s really bad.

You still could be right :wink:, but the start has been really promising.


#2516

I did mean to comment, it’s proper messed up. I don’t really understand why he didn’t seek an outside opinion though. Maybe I’m just a crank but I question everything doctors tell me (I don’t have to see doctors very often thankfully).

So I would have been asking the basis for his opinion on why it was diet related. What tests had been run etc etc. If I feel like shit I want to figure out why. I don’t get why he didn’t. Maybe he had a good reason.


#2517

Yeah fair. It seems like Napoli wouldn’t let him get a second opinion until he finally managed to and they fixed him.


#2518

He stated in the interview that he wasn’t allowed by the club and the club doctor to get a second opinion in first instance. After a while when he got a second opinion he wasn’t allowed to be operated (twice). He only got the operation when he left on loan for Carpi.


#2519

Yeah I get he “wasn’t allowed” but they also couldn’t have actually stopped him. I’m sure other considerations entered his head and his contract says blah blah but he was not been taken care of and was being called a liar. I’d have taken my chances.

Red face paint is to bring awareness to violence against women.
