"It has been an important year thanks to the work of everyone, from the club to staff and the players," the Coach told the official Napoli website.
"Sometimes in football you can achieve extraordinary things. It is easy to finish high up the table one year, but the toughest thing is confirming your status the next.
"Napoli have managed this consistent growth and added results that have brought us to settle at certain levels. This represents a crucial step for a club."
