Gökhan Inler has been gathering intelligence on Trabzonspor says Benitez [divider]
Napoli manager Rafa Benitez has revealed that he has been using Gökhan İnler to gather information on Trabzonspor.
“As you know Gökhan İnler is of Turkish origin and I have been able to gather some intelligence through him and we have based some of our tactics on this information,” Benitez told Vatan.
The 30-year-old central midfielder has spent four years at Napoli since joining in July 2011 from Udinese.
The Swiss international of Turkish descent has scored one goal in 14 appearances for Napoli this season.
İnler was linked with a move to Turkey over the winter transfer window but talks with Beşiktaş and Galatasaray stalled.
Trabzonspor will only have 14 available players against Napoli.
The Black Sea Storm are expected to be without Waris, Yatabare and Bosingwa due to injury. Mehmet Ekici and Kevin Constant will also miss the match due to suspension.
Napoli are currently 3rd in the Serie A. Benitez’s side lost their game on the weekend against Palermo by a 3-1 scoreline.
Trabzonspor are 5th in the Turkish Super League with 33 points in 20 games.
