"El Tanque" Promises Napoli 20 Goals
Here in bella Napoli there is much excitement over new signing German Denis, acquired from Independiente in a five year deal for €8 million. The 26-year-old came on the recommendation of last year's Neapolitan Argentine sensation, Ezequiel Lavezzi and will complete an all-Argentine attack for the Ciucciarelli.
Yesterday Denis promised to score 20 goals this season and after scoring 15 goals in his first 13 games of Argentina's apertura, the Napoli faithful seem ready to believe him.
"I want to do well with the shirt of Napoli and try to win the championship,” said ‘El Tanque’, who was presented to the media along with fellow new signings Christian Maggio and Leandro Rinaudo.
Hopefully, 18 year old American striker Vincenzo Bernardo, who plays for the SSC Napoli reserve team can learn some new tricks from Denis. Bernardo finished a respectable reserve season tallying five goals and eight assists in 15 games and even began training with the first team.
Napoli begins training on July 24th in Austria minus Lavezzi and Nicolas Navarro, both on Olympic duty for Argentina.
