On the missed Scudetto and on the season: “I can’t say I’m totally happy, the title race was something important for us too, but we didn’t manage to get those points we needed to triumph. The fans were a bit unhappy because they wanted us to fight until the end. Considering their affection, it’s a shame and it hurt. When you play for Napoli, you play for a small nation and you don’t have to forget it. They love football, they love their club and their colors. We could have done better, but still happiness doesn’t he must be missing for the fact that we will play in the Champions League. And this will help us to prepare properly. Future? We will also lose some players, some will go away, some contracts will expire.
