Udinese striker Fernando Llorente: No Napoli regrets

Udinese striker Fernando Llorente insists he has no regrets over his stay with Napoli.

In his 18 months at Napoli, Llorente managed only 29 competitive appearances, still scoring four goals.

“I felt like a caged lion over the last year. It's tough to keep your mentality in the right place when you train for months and never step on the pitch. Sensing there's no faith in you does hurt," he said.

“Having said that, I don't regret the move, as it was a good experience playing for Napoli. I do have to thank Udinese though for giving me the chance to feel like a real player again."
