Napoli’s right winger spoke to Tuttomercatoweb after Napoli’s nail-biting one goal victory over Fiorentina.
Callejon says that now the team must set its mind on winning the championship, and to do that they must overcome their next opponents, whether it be Juventus or Milan.
“Fiorentina played beautiful football, with great dribbling, but we made a serious game due to our tactical and mental play, we played mature football.”
Callejon proved to be the hero for Napoli fans after he netted the beautiful 71st-minute header from a great cross from Marek Hamsik. Callejon was vital in the efforts of a hard fought game, and even though he partook in a couple of questionable dives that resulted in the red carding of Fiorentina’s Maximiliano Oliveira, he was ultimately the reason why Napoli players and Partenopei fans everywhere are rejoicing as Napoli head to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia final.
Callejon also added:
“Semifinal? We are happy to have turned that game into a victory, and we are indifferent to who we face, whether it be Juventus or Milan.”
After today’s decisive win, Napoli now set their eyes on Sunday’s match against Palermo, who are facing relegation. Though Napoli did have a decisive victory, one must note that Napoli’s right back Elseid Hysaj received a red card in the 90th minute, and their head coach Sarri was suspended.
