Kevin Malcuit’s agent Bruno Satin is confident the French international footballer is ready to make his Napoli debut against Fiorentina, stating that he can play on the left of defence too.

The match will kick off on Saturday at 17.00 UK time. As the Champions League is underway, Carlo Ancelotti would want to rotate the squad even though there aren’t enough left-backs for adequate rotation.

One of the left-backs Vlad Chiriches is out for four to six months having ruptured his ACL on international duty with Romania. Faouzi Ghoulam and Amin Younes, on the other hand, are not fully fit yet following their own knee injuries.

“Malcuit is ready to make his Napoli debut and is in good shape physically,” representative Bruno Satin told Radio Kiss Kiss and quoted by Football Italia.

“He can play on the left of defence too, that’s not a problem. It’s early to say whether he could start against Fiorentina, but Napoli can’t afford another defeat.”
