Even though Napoli reached the top of Italian Serie A after 33 years, the reality was revealed that they had no choice but to renew contracts by cutting the salaries of key players by nearly half.
The player in question is Piotr Zielinski, a Polish national team player who took on the role of central midfielder in the 4-3-3 formation and devoted himself to being an undisputed main player.
On the 15th, the influential Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ said, “Zielinski has one year left on his contract, so he has to decide whether to stay next season.” (Approximately 5 billion won) is being received in excess. Will he remain until he cuts his salary?”
Naples local media ‘Area Napoli’ said, “The Naples club continues to seek an agreement with Zielinski.” I can offer you a contract.”
Born in 1994, Zielinski, who moved to Napoli from Serie A Udinese in 2016, played 250 Serie A games in Napoli alone during seven seasons. He can play a central midfielder and an attacking midfielder at the same time, so he also served as the helmsman of the attack behind the one-top Victor Osimen with Stanislav Lobotka this season, and also served as the first line of defense for the opposing attack.
This season, he played his part as the main player in Napoli’s victory, scoring three goals in 34 Serie A matches. 안전놀이터
However, due to Naples financial problems at the crossroads of the renewal contract, rather than raising the weekly wage, he is in a situation where he has to cut it. Napoli lifted the Serie A championship cup, but the home stadium income was less than 20 billion won a year, so there was no big difference from lower-ranking small and medium clubs, and it was revealed that the club’s finances were worsening due to Corona 19 over the past three years.
Napoli’s poor financial situation was evident in the matter of renewing the Zelinski contract.
Zielinski has recently been embroiled in rumors of a transfer to Newcastle United in the Premier League, but he is showing a strong will to stay in Naples. He explains the reality of Naples well with the ‘paradox’ of having to cut his salary even though he won the champion trophy.
