Roberto Insigne, born May 11, 1994 in Frattamaggiore (Italy), is an Italian footballer, who plays as a right winger to Benevento Calcio.
His older brother, Lorenzo, is also a footballer and has been playing for Napoli since 2009.
Roberto Insigne evolves as a supportive, technical, quick and agile striker in front of goal, not unlike his big brother Lorenzo. Captain of Napoli’s Primavera, Insigne made his debut with the Neapolitan first team in the Europa League against PSV, on December 6, 2012, at 18, then in Serie A against Napoli a few weeks later, in the summer of 2013 , it is loaned to Perugia in 1 ^ Division of Lega Pro.
A first goal against his brother, tears of joy: the crazy day of revenge Roberto Insigne.
Football can sometimes offer us great stories, where joy and sadness intermingle. That of Roberto Insigne is a clear illustration of this. Trained in Naples with his older brother, Lorenzo, he never really had his chance with the Partenopei (2 matches …). Bringuebalé from club to club according to the seasons and the years, always loaned in lower Leagues to harden, he attended almost powerless, the feats achieved by his older brother in Naples, their club of common heart (more than 300 matches, 91 goals and 74 assists).
Loaned to Benevento at the dawn of summer 2018 to start a sixth consecutive loan, Roberto Insigne decided a year later to definitely widen the moorings to leave Naples and finally initial a long-term contract with Benevento. And this Sunday, the Campagnie club faced Naples for an expected clash between the two Insigne brothers.
Pushed in the back by the intoxicating motivation to prove to Naples that he was undoubtedly better than this role of eternal “loaned”, Roberto even opens the mark just before half-time, concluding perfectly a beautiful collective action in the small rectangle. The 26-year-old winger thus signs his very first Serie A goal against his favorite club (and against his brother) and can not hold back his tears after this moving baptism of fire.
Unfortunately for him, he will not be able to celebrate a victory at the same time since a few minutes later, it is his brother, Lorenzo, who sets the record straight for a sumptuous strike in the middle of the victorious skylight.
Lorenzo 1, Roberto 1, and a beautiful and symbolic equality with the marker between the two brothers.
For the anecdote, Naples will finally win this meeting 1-2 thanks to a goal from Petagna at the end of the match.
