After an international break, Napoli continued their winning ways by defeating the Serie A’s first place team, Fiorentina, by a score of 2-1. Mauricio Sarri spoke to Premium and commented on the great crowd that came to the San Paolo, Higuain’s form, and once again praised the growth of his squad.
Sarri: “I love the crowd of the San Paolo, there is no equal to this audience. I thank the fans, the public was amazing.”
The manager then commented on the form and work ethic of the club’s star striker, Gonzalo Higuain, who was the author of the game winning goal in the victory Sunday afternoon.
“At this moment he is in great mental shape, and you can see that based on the way he plays and the way he trains.”
Sarri also referred to the growth of the team as he continues to see more positives based on the club’s recent win streak.
“The team has grown due to the great acceptance and availability of the players. I didn’t believe that a team of such high level could be so great at accepting a coach that comes from the province such as me. The team has grown offensively and defensively.”
The Partenopei are in incredible form and continue to impress in the Serie A, moving all the way up to a 4th place tie in the table. Napoli has a game midweek in the Europa League tournament when they face, Midtjylland before playing in another tough match away at Chievo Verona on Sunday.
