Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has hit out at the media.
The Partenopei have won their first two Serie A games of the season and could mount a serious title challenge to Juventus.
â€śIf it were up to me, of course Iâ€™d love to top the table with a 10-point advantage, but I cannot say that itâ€™d be a failure if we didnâ€™t finish second. Itâ€™s one thing to hope and another to make a prediction,â€ť mused the Coach.
â€śI would like to ask the media a question: how do they decide who are favourites and who arenâ€™t? Lazio have experienced players in attack, so what is the difference between them and us?
â€śI get fired up when the bar is raised, but Iâ€™d like an explanation for what they base their judgements on. Look at Roma, who have a mix of experience and youth and signed great players like Federico Balzaretti.â€ť
