Tottenham Hotspurs manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that Napoli can win the Scudetto.
Pochettino spoke to Radio CRC earlier today ahead of the huge second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 between his Spurs side and Juventus.
“Napoli can win the Scudetto, Maurizio Sarri’s side play the most beautiful football in Europe and whenever I get the chance, I always like to watch the Azzurri games. They will fight to the end with Juventus for the Scudetto. I have no need to give Sarri advice on how to deal with Juve, as he is already one of the best Coaches in the world. Sarri is Sarri and Pep Guardiola is Guardiola, they both have their own style that they try to improve day after day.”
Napoli destroyed Cagliari 5-0 at the Sardegna Arena last night and Pochettino commented on the performance of his former player José Callejón.
“I’ve been watching [Jose] Callejon since his time in Spain and I feel very fond of him because I was his Coach at Espanyol.”
The Tottenham manager was then asked if he’d ever be interested in coaching Napoli.
“Could I be the future Coach of Napoli? I’d have to ask permission from Diego Maradona first.”
A question was also asked about the upcoming second leg between his side and ‘La Vecchia Signora’. The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw at the Allianz Stadium and Tottenham are at an advantage to progress through to the Quarter-Finals as they scored two away goals.
“We got a good result in Turin, but qualification is still wide open. We must work hard to earn our place in the Quarter-Finals.”
