Napoli have earned the right to take their place at Europe's top table with their performances this season, says Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
The skipper was speaking after the Azzurri's 5-0 aggregate victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16.
“We're happy to have written a new page in Napoli history,” he said following the 3-0 win at the Stadio Maradona.
"We've had a great night and played a great game. We're revelling in the moment but already looking forward.
“Our results show that we deserve our place among the best eight teams in Europe and it's something we're proud of.
“All the sides left in the competition are top class but we'll try to show our quality against whoever we have to play. If we've come this far, it means we're capable of giving anyone a game. We'll give it our all and see where it takes us.”
