Santacroce considers using Article 17 to leave Napoli

Napoli defender Fabiano Santacroce is unsettled.

Santacroce is threatening to invoke Article 17, but only in order to move abroad.

"I don't think this sort of rumour is good for Napoli," FIFA agent Antonio Crusco told CalcioNapoli24.it.

"Fabiano is a professional and the directors are perfectly capable of dealing with the situation in a relaxed fashion.

"We must clarify that Article 17 is there to look after the interests of 'worker football players' with regards to professional clubs.

"If the player does not clarify his situation with Napoli and decides to resolve his contract unilaterally with or without just cause, he could do so by sending a fax to the club within 15 days of the last official game of the season."
