The wing-back was linked with a move away during the summer.
"Things are going great for Christian," Massimo Briaschi told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. "At this club he can become one of the best full-backs in the world.
"Things are also going well in the National Team. He's always done well and can become a strong point for them."
