Italy's World Cup winning coach Marcello Lippi admits he's been impressed by Napoli's new signings.

Of former Juventus pair Manuele Blasi and Marcelo Zalayeta, Lippi said: "I coached those two at Juve and one with the national team. They're both excellent purchases.

"Ezequiel Lavezzi is a breakout player and I also like Walter Gargano. He's tough and also very quick.

"I'm sure Napoli will have a good championship."
