Napoli came away 2-0 winners against Empoli after matchday 10 of Serie A action. Here is what Dries Mertens had to say in his post match interview with Premium Sport.
“We played a good game against Crotone and we wanted to continue that performance today, it was important to be at our maximum before the match against Juventus.”
On his 150 caps for Napoli:
“150 caps? I hope there will be more to come. The only thing that counted today were the three points, now we are looking towards Juventus. We need to look game after game, now we think about Saturday and we want to win.
On former teammate Gonzalo Higuain:
“Jokes with Higuain? No, at the maximum a slap! Friends don’t exist on the pitch, it will be a very important match.”
