Inler denies Napoli rumours

Udinese midfielder Gokhan Inler has denied claims that the reason he didn't celebrate his goal against Napoli is because he is moving to the San Paolo in June.

The Switzerland international scored a screamer in a 2-1 victory that all but ends Napoli's hopes of winning the Scudetto this season.

Inler's goal wasn't just conspicuous by its quality, but by the absence of a celebration too, which indicated that he has ties to Napoli.

Udinese have previously said that they will sell either Alexis Sanchez or Inler this summer.

It's no mystery that Napoli have repeatedly inquired about signing the 26-year-old and that they have even received encouragement from Udinese.

"I didn't celebrate because I have many Neapolitan friends, not because I know that I am coming here," Inler said.
