Walter Mazzarri has received a boost ahead of his first match in charge of Napoli. Three key players, including Victor Osimhen, Piotr Zielinski and Alex Meret, all took part in full training with the first team on Friday.
Osimhen, the top scorer in Serie A 2022-23, has been absent for around six weeks after suffering a hamstring injury while on international duty with Nigeria in early October. Meret is recovering from a calf problem sustained in the 1-1 draw with Union Berlin in the Champions League on November 8. Zielinski returned early from international duty with Poland this month after suffering from tonsillitis. According to information released by Napoli on Friday, all three trained with the squad in the final session before Saturday’s important clash with Atalanta. La Dea are currently fifth in Serie A, one point and one place behind Napoli.
