Spalletti spoke to the press ahead of Liverpool wearing a scarf where he revealed he broke his collarbone

Spalletti, 63, underwent surgery in Milan on Sunday morning after an accidental fall on arriving at the club’s training ground.

He has since returned on the eve of Europe’s clash with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and revealed the incident in his pre-match press conference.

“I had an accident on Sunday morning on my way to Castel Volturno [Napoli’s training ground] speak with Salvatore Sirigu and Diego Demme,” he said.

“I had a broken collarbone.

“I told our doctors it was lunchtime. I was in pain, we went to the Pineta Grande clinic in Campania to do some tests. On x-rays, we found a broken collarbone.

“Dr. Alessandro Castagna, the head doctor of traumatology at Humanitas in Milan made me available where they were very kind.

The 63-year-old explained how the incident happened

“I checked and arrived in Milan at 4am and they were waiting for me there, at 11.30am they found me a place and operated.

“I left at 3 p.m., I was released yesterday at 7 p.m. and thanks to a friend I managed to get back to Castel Volturno. I missed training yesterday.

“I also wanted to thank the mole at the training ground who leaked the news,” he added.

Spalletti, however, is looking forward to a reunion with Alisson and Salah, after leading the duo at Roma.

Alisson, who Spalletti managed at Roma, is one of the shirts the Napoli boss wants for his collection

“It will be a great satisfaction to see Alisson and Mohamed Salah again. I had the chance to train them both and I will be delighted to see them in action again,” he said.

“When Alisson signed for Liverpool from Roma [in 2018]he was one of the most expensive keepers of all time and despite that he showed his worth.

“If you try to compare Alisson in terms of ranking in the goalkeeping stakes, he’s almost the No.9 goalkeeper in terms of stature, character and quality.

He also hopes to get his hands on Salah’s jersey

“As for Mo Salah, once in a press conference after a 4-0 win over Palermo, I highlighted the fact that he sprinted 60 yards to regain possession despite us winning 4-0 .

“He is one of those players who can keep alive a ball that seems dead and buried.

“Alisson and Salah are two shirts I would love to add to my collection and I will be giving them a big hug tomorrow night.”
