Conte was happy with the character his team showed.
â€śConsidering the first half, we could taste the victory and the chance to put Napoli further behind,â€ť Coach Conte told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śIt didnâ€™t happen, but we put in a strong performance in terms of character despite a very fiery atmosphere. I compliment the players on keeping their heads in this stadium.
â€śWe did well not to lose our calm and stay in the game at all times. There are 11 rounds to go and itâ€™s all open, so we have to keep pedalling at full pace to stay out in front.
â€śThe Scudetto is far away on a mathematical level, as we are six points in front â€“ which is a good advantage â€“ but there are another 33 available. Donâ€™t forget we still have to play Milan, Inter and the revelation Catania.
â€śWe must always be gritty, determined and motivated to get the points, because every match is difficult and a surprise is always around the corner.
â€śThere is no more time for fun and games or slip-ups. If we do well, then weâ€™ll get there, but if we donâ€™t then itâ€™s only right that someone else finishes first. Thatâ€™s why we have to keep our heads down.â€ť
