Cajuste discusses Conte, Kulusevski, and Gyokeres’ potential move to Napoli


Napoli midfielder Jens Cajuste shared his thoughts on his future at the club, and the arrival of new head coach Antonio Conte. Speaking with Swedish portal Fotbolskanalen, he touched on his first season with Napoli and what he expects from the new coach:

“The past season was filled with ups and downs and a succession of different coaches, which wasn’t easy. Nevertheless, I tried to learn from every experience, and I will carry those lessons forward. Being at a major club like Napoli has taught me the importance of maintaining focus on our goals. Every single day, 24/7, you have to work hard. I’ve improved both physically and in my gameplay. I’ve gained about 5 kilograms, which has helped me perform better in one-on-one situations.”

“Playing for a top club like Napoli is incredible. You can feel it immediately—the pressure from the fans and the club is palpable. Expectations are high, and every match is a must-win with no exceptions.”

“I’ve heard a lot about Conte, and it’s exciting to think about working with him. I discussed him with my national teammate Dejan Kulusevski, who told me that I need to be prepared to work extremely hard.”

“Napoli is a prestigious club, and there will be new players joining us. I believe it will be an exciting project. Regarding Gyokeres, he possesses all the qualities to succeed here at Napoli.

“I haven’t received any other directives, so I assume I’ll be staying with Napoli. At the moment, I expect to remain here, but in football, things can change very quickly. We’ll have to see how things unfold. As for the Galatasaray rumors, I don’t know anything about that.”
