Rrahmani: ‘The draw with Verona was a difficult moment’

Amir Rrahmani admitted Napoli’s draw with his former club Hellas Verona on the last day of the championship was ‘a difficult moment’ but has vowed to give everything to be successful this term.

The former Gialloblu defender said Napoli are not looking back and only focus on the next challenge, with Luciano Spalletti having replaced Gennaro Gattuso at the Stadio Diego Maradona ahead of 2021-22.

“Napoli are a profession that doesn’t make you think about the past,” Rrahmani told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “Today, you play, tomorrow you think about the next one.”

But Rrahmani admitted the 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona on May 23 in the last game of 2020-21 was tough to swallow.

The result meant Napoli missed out on the Champions League and helped Juventus finish fourth in Serie A, with the Partenopei fifth, one point behind the Old Lady.

“It was a difficult moment for everyone,” he continued. “We are coming from a bad moment, we played for a place in the Champions League, but we didn’t manage.

“In the first month it didn’t go too well, and the second part of the season was a miracle.”

The defender said the Europa League is now a target like ‘everything else’ and said the new coach’s ideas are already coming across during the first weeks of pre-season training.

“It’s a target like everything else we are playing,” Rrahmani added. “The Scudetto and the Coppa Italia. We don’t know what the future will bring.

“We already know what Spalletti wants and what he asks from the defence. We are working to grow in these terms.

“We have done everything possible, and we will do everything in the future. This is our lives, passion and profession.”
