The Salentini are in the relegation zone and need points to escape the drop when they host the Partenopei this afternoon.
"I certainly don't expect Napoli to be unmotivated, as they are determined and eager to capture second place," said the Coach.
"If you give them a little space, then they are the best side in Italy on the counter. They give no reference points in attack and their movement off the ball is very impressive.
"Our fans represent a secret weapon and their participation in this game could be crucial. The crowd gives the players these emotions that can then be transformed into greater effort, focus and the pleasure of playing football."
