Mazzarri shrugs off Lavezzi strop during Napoli draw

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri played down Ezequiel Lavezzi's strop during their stalemate with Cagliari.

Lavezzi was irritable throughout the match and furious at his substitution, hurling his shin pads at a wall.

"He probably wasn't happy with his performance," shrugged Mazzarri.

"When I see a player who isn't having a good day, I tend to try someone else. Intelligent players reflect on their performances. Lavezzi is crucial for me, but today he didn't give his best."
