Napoli ritiro row turns ugly after Allan home invasion

The wife of Napoli midfielder Allan is fed up with life in Naples.

The Brazilian has been named in the media as one of the ring-leaders behind the squad mutiny against a training retreat, along with Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon.

It's emerged Allan's home was broken into, but there was reportedly nothing stolen.

“ENOUGH!" wrote Allan's heavily-pregnant wife Thais on Instagram.

“I think now it is really getting out of hand and I cannot take it anymore. First my husband is attacked not for what he does on the field, but some alleged accusations created on purpose by someone who wants to distort reality…

“Then every day I get insulted on social media with disrespectful words. This week it even happened while I was out shopping.

“Last night, we add this enormous scare! People who broke into the house in full daylight, creating chaos and messing up the children's rooms, violating our intimate home space. My children were crying, terrified!

“We've been welcomed so well since arriving in Naples, but now people cannot use fake news to treat a family and children like this.

“This is not football. This is not how you support a team."
