Marcelo Zalayeta grabbed the winner for Napoli and Materazzi said: "I must make compliments to Napoli, who have played very well. We must react to the difficulties that we have. We do have too many injuries, but at the bottom of the league the same thing happens."
Asked about the refereeing yesterday, Materazzi was adamant: "Two Napoli players were able to get away with important fouls. If it was me or Patrick Vieira making the same sort of tackles, what do you think would have happened ...?"
