Napoli have left Allan out of their squad to face Genoa in Serie A tomorrow, amidst speculation about his role in the squad’s strike action.
It has been a controversial week for the Partenopei, whose players refused to take part in a punitive training camp and instead went home after their 1-1 draw with RB Salzburg.
Allan was allegedly among those who led the mutiny and, seemingly as a consequence, has been omitted without an injury to speak of.
Napoli fans notably jeered the midfielder during the team’s training session yesterday, which was open to season-ticket holders.
Other absentees include defenders Kostas Manolas and Faouzi Ghoulam, both of whom remain unfit.
Napoli squad to face Genoa: Meret, Ospina, Karnezis; Di Lorenzo, Koulibaly, Luperto, Hysaj, Maksimovic, Tonelli, Mario Rui; Fabian, Callejon, Gaetano, Zielinski, Elmas; Insigne, Milik, Mertens, Lozano, Llorente, Younes
