MILAN - Switzerland captain
Gokhan Inler was presented by his new club Napoli wearing a
lion mask on Monday after completing his move to the club
following lengthy negotiations.
"I've chosen Napoli to win," the defensive midfielder,
famous for his tenacity, told the club's website after joining from Udinese.
"I'm happy, I'd decided to come to Napoli a while ago. This
is a great club, a beautiful family and a special public," he
"When I played at the San Paolo with Udinese, I realised
that the warmth of this crowd is extraordinary."
Inler, at FC Basel and FC Zurich earlier in his career,
played for Udinese for four seasons, during which he also became
a regular for Switzerland.
The 27-year-old took over the captaincy of the Swiss side
last season after the international retirement of record scorer
Napoli will play in the Champions League next season after
their third-place finish in Serie A.
The new season is but six weeks away (in the Football League)
