Despite coming extremely close to taking the lead in the Italian Serie A table, the Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri has said that his team is certainly not worried about the presence of Juventus. Juventus have been in the top Italian team for the last year and half. Hence, there are currently present at the top of the table, but Napoli are giving them a real fight to the title. After slipping down the table in the middle of the campaign, Napoli have once again come back into the mix of the title race due to a mixture of good form and bad results for the opposition.
Napoli will be taking on Catania during the weekend, and there has been a suggestion that the team will be having one eye on the results from Juventus. Instead, Mazzarri has promised that Catania will be the sole attention for the team this weekend. He has pointed out to the recent good form of Catania as the main reason for this being a difficult match. Catania come into the encounter on the back of the three successive victories. The manager has said that he is extremely pleased with the arrivals at the club so far in January.
“We are not thinking about Juventus. Rather, we will need to be combative against one of the true revelations of the season that can count on an incisive attack and has won three matches in a row. It will be a very difficult match and we will need all the help we can get from the supporters. We let go some players who were not receiving the playing time they needed and were at risk of regressing and players arrived that will add depth in light of competing in both the league and in Europe,” said Mazzarri.
