Napoli SSC has won the Serie A after 33 long years. Finally, the team in blue has managed to get its hands on the Sliver Plate! The league was won last year by AC Milan and before that, it was won by Inter Milan. This marks that Juventus dominance in Italy has come to an end. The team from Turin is no longer the one to talk about and watch out for in the Italian football circuit but there are many more great teams too. This has increased the competitiveness in the league. Here is an in-depth look:
Napoli Are Italian Champions:
Winning the Serie A post the Maradona era was certainly a very big thing. They never had the players, the manager, or the spirits post-Maradona left. But the 2022-2023 season was a little different. The players played out of their skins and out-performed in all aspects. Napoli found new superstars in the world of football.
The game of football is a story of comebacks and this story is one for the ages. Napoli has won the league with complete dominance. They have earned 80 points in 33 games and have decided the winners of the league even while 5 games of their own are still pending. This team has scripted history. They are 16 points clear of the second-placed Lazio who are at 64 points.
Key Players Who Helped Them Win:
Victor Osimhen is their top goal scorer this season and he also happens to be the top goal-scorer in the Serie A. He hit the back of the net 22 times this season. The man with the mask or the “Ninja” as they call him was the man who made the difference on the pitch. With him on, Napoli looked like a different team. He was their power of belief.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, the Georgian nightmare, was a strike force this season. He was the one who made the most assists this season. He managed to make a goalscoring play 10 times throughout the season. At 22 years, he has a very bright future. Khvicha was very highly rated by Fabrizio Romano when he was picked by Napoli.
Kim Min Jae was the one at the back who helped them. He was like a solid rock. The Asian footballers are taking over Europe and this is a sign of it. Kim was very tough to pass through. He made the most intercepts and clearances this season. His performance was very impactful and it can also help him earn a new contract this season.
