Napoli boss Donadoni happy to give Mannini comeback game

Napoli boss Roberto Donadoni was happy to field Daniele Mannini for their 0-0 draw with AC Milan.

Midfielder Mannini made his first appearance in two months, as his one-year ban for turning up late to a doping test was 'frozen' pending an appeal on Friday.

"Mannini had so much hunger and desire to pour out everything that has been building during this ban and I admit I played on that mentality a little bit to get him really fired up," said Donadoni.
