Carlo Ancelotti didn’t hold back in his praise of Napoli following their 3-1 win against Red Star Belgrade at the Stadio San Paolo this evening.
"This team excites me," the coach began. "We didn’t look at the numbers, we played to win without thinking about the other game. Goal difference doesn’t make a difference; we’re going to Liverpool to get the win."
To be leading the group after five games is a great achievement for this young, developing team: "We’re first in the group and I don’t know who’d have bet on that after five games. Now we have to complete the job with another excellent performance against Liverpool. Everything else is just talk to us."
On December 11th the Azzurri will play at Anfield stadium against the Reds: "Of course, we need to be concerned about them, but they need to be about us as well. We must face up to the challenge, focus on our game and do what we’re capable of, aware of our limits but also our strengths."
