Despite taking an early lead, Napoli’s friendly against Mallorca finished all tied on Sunday evening. Defender Juan Jesus was hoping for a better result but saw the game as a useful stepping stone in the team’s preparations for the coming season. “We wanted to win and probably deserved to do so, but it was still a great game for getting the legs going.
“The most important thing is that we manage to improve. We are working hard and want to be ready for the start of the season.”
The Brazilian has also been impressed so far with new team-mate Kim Min-jae, who made his debut in the match. “He’s a great player who will show what he can do. He’ll be a great addition.”
