Crazybola.com – Napoli reportedly have the opportunity to sign former AS Roma goalkeeper Antonio Mirante before the match against Juventus because two of their goalkeepers are injured.
Preparations from Napoli to face the challenge from Juventus in the continuation of the Serie A match on September 11 will continue to experience disturbances. After the threat of the absence of their mainstay striker Victor Osimhen who was suspended for two matches after being shown a red card in the opening match of I Partenopei, now Luciano Spalletti’s side are also having problems in the goalkeeper sector.
Their current first-choice goalkeeper Alex Meret has been ruled out after suffering an injury that prevented him from participating with the Italian national team in the World Cup qualifiers. Now according to news from Sky Sport Italia, Meret’s cover, David Ospina also experienced physical problems in the Colombian national team match against Bolivia.
Ospina’s condition is reportedly not too severe but considering the close distance between Colombia and Napoli’s last match against Juventus, the player is considered not to be in a ready condition. For this reason, I Partenopei is now reportedly considering bringing in senior goalkeeper Antonio Mirante, who is still on a free transfer after his contract with AS Roma ended at the end of June.
Even though he is 38 years old, Mirante is expected to be able to help I Partenopei this season, not only in the party against Juventus. However, of course, the concerns of I Partenopei will be focused when facing I Bianconeri because if Meret and Ospina are absent Spalletti can only rely on goalkeepers from the Primavera team.
Of course, it would be safer for Napoli if they could play an experienced figure under the bar in an important match against I Bianconeri who are hungry for victory. Appearing at home, the pressure is also certainly big enough for I Partenopei to be able to achieve full points because the opponent they face is indeed one of the rivals in the competition at the top of Serie A this season.
