Napoli will be short-handed for Friday’s match against Monza, as Stanislav Lobotka has fractured a rib and Natan needs specialist treatment for a dislocated shoulder.
Last night’s 2-0 defeat by Roma will have repercussions for the Partenopei, perhaps until 2024. Lobotka came off in the second half and seemed to have difficulty moving around. It has now been confirmed that the midfielder has suffered a broken rib, and his condition will be assessed in the coming days. For Natan is even more serious, as the central defender fell awkwardly in the final minutes and was clearly unable to move. He has been diagnosed with a dislocation of the right shoulder and will require a specialist consultation next week. It remains to be seen whether the Brazilian will require surgery, so his absence could last between two and eight weeks.
