Napoli boss Mazzarri impressed by Conte's work at Juventus

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri admires the work being done by Juventus counterpart Antonio Conte.

The two clubs meet today.

Mazzarri almost walked away from the San Paolo over the summer, as he had reportedly been offered the Juventus job.

"I simply felt the need to sit down with the President and discuss certain aspects of the season we were going into. Everything went well," insisted the Coach.

"I didn't think of anything else, so Conte absolutely did not take my place. In fact, Conte reminds me of my youth, but with even more temperament.

"In today's football you need Coaches like this who keep the team on their toes at all times."
