Serie A News: Lorenzo Insigne says his decision to move to MLS by strengthening Toronto FC is a form of his love for Napoli. How come can?
Last summer, Lorenzo Insigne officially joined Toronto FC with the status free transfer after his contract was not renewed by management Il Partenopei.
Many regretted the 31-year-old’s decision to play in Canada as MLS was seen as a competition where players are close to reaching retirement age.
But in his interview with The Gazzetta dello Sportthere’s a distinct reason why Insigne chose Toronto as their new club.
Insigne admits he really likes Napoli and has rejected a number of offers from other Serie A clubs.
Apart from that, he has also rejected offers from European clubs outside of Italy so that he does not meet Il Partenopei in the official blue intercontinental competition.
“I received several offers in Italy. But from the start I have to say that I am a Neapolitan and a real Napoli supporter. I only want to wear this shirt in Serie A,” Insigne said.
“There have also been offers from outside clubs. But I have absolutely no interest except in Toronto.”
“It’s not easy actually because I’ve never played so far from home. But I want to fully live this new experience.”
“Now I want to enjoy my career and try to be a winner with this team,” concluded the EURO 2020 champion.
