Notizie | 05/05/2019

Speaking after Napoli’s last-gasp victory over Cagliari on Sunday evening, which confirmed that the team will finish the season in second place, Carlo Ancelotti called on his players not to let up.

He said: "I’m satisfied with having mathematically secured second place, but we’re not stopping here – we want to win the next three games.

"Overall this season has been positive but to give a better assessment I’d like to wait until the end of the season – there are still nine points to play for.

"Tonight we reacted well. A feature of this team is that when they’re motivated, they show great character and provide some thrilling moments."

On the stoppage time penalty, the coach added: "It was not an easy decision. If it was given it means they’ve seen a handball in the area. We ourselves had to accept a very dubious decision against Juve. The key is to understand that the referee definitely doesn’t want to favour anyone."
