Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne spoke on his first hearbreak in football in an interview with Dugout: “The first team I played for was Olimpia Grumese, then from there I went to Napoli. The first trophy I won was a best player trophy in a youth tournament in Turin. The trophy was bigger than me! I was very proud.”
“In the same year, I wasn’t Inter and Torino opted not to sign me, as they said I was too short. I’m happy the way things panned out though, because I made my dream come true by playing for Napoli,” he added.
