Napoli put in a brilliant display on Saturday night, coming back from a goal behind to defeat Lazio in Rome. Coach Luciano Spalletti was pleased with what he saw from his players and hopes they can build on this going forward. “It was an excellent performance. The team showed that they can be united, compact and competitive.

“We’re on the right track. This evening, the lads did what we’ve been working towards in terms of gameplay. We were fantastic aside from a few passages when we lost the ball needlessly.”

The coach was full of praise for goalscorers Kim Minjae and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. “They are exceptional guys who had some difficult shoes to fill. I want to thank the club’s scouting channels because they’ve brought in quality players.

“Kvara is quite a shy guy who seems reserved, but when he goes out onto the pitch, he shows his character and especially his talent.”

On Wednesday, the Champions League begins and Napoli are set to face Liverpool. “There’s no time to think about this win, but it’s exciting to start this European journey. We have the right attitude to face these world-class teams. We need to show our personality to be able to play our best against all of them.”
