After Napoli’s convincing win at Dacia Arena, Luciano Spalletti explained that the team is showing signs of improvement.
“I expected this sort of performance. The team is growing in awareness. We’re more and more confident in our ability and our quality.
“We’re showing our strength as a team. Individual virtues are only worth anything if there’s a team and togetherness behind them. If the collective attitude brings the best out of the individuals, that’s how you achieve the most.
“At the start, we weren’t able to break up their passing game, but we then grew into the game and stamped our authority on it. We controlled possession and did well going forward. Everything then became much easier.
“We can’t take any notice of the league table at the moment or of what our opponents are doing. We have to feed off the warmth and passion from the fans.
“What matters isn’t our form, but achieving that consistency in the long term. As for tonight, we can highlight the growth in the team’s mentality. It’ll be important to build on this in terms of our attitude and results.”
