Russia coach Fabio Capello admits he's a big fan of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

Capello says Walter Mazzarri deserves credit for Cavani's progress.

"Last year I was in the stands for the Champions League games between Napoli and Manchester City, so realised Edinson Cavani is on another level. He runs, battles, scores goals on the counter and in the box, maybe even surrounded by four or five opponents. Mazzarri deserves credit for turning Cavani into a total player and not just a hitman," said the Italian.
