The Parthenopeans are having a successful season, topping the Serie A table with 41 points accumulated after 15 matches – 8 points more than defending champion AC Milan. They are one of only two teams that have yet to taste defeat in Europe’s top five leagues this season, alongside Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Napoli haven’t won Serie A since 1990 when the great Diego Maradona inspired them to win the Scudetto. Now, Salvatore Bagni places a lot of faith in the team of current coach Luciano Spalletti.
Speaking to Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport, Bagni said: “There may be some difficulties, but Luciano Spalletti shows he knows how to organize a squad full of competition and desire.
Up front, he has a player like Victor Osimhen, that’s the center half of Europe coveted and a champion like Kvicha Kvaratskhelia. So Napoli only have to fear themselves.”
Osimhen is the top scorer in Serie A with nine goals (0 penalties) despite missing four games through injury. He is being shouted at by Napoli for more than 100 million euros before the interest of Man United.
