Napoli sports chief Pierpaolo Marino was delighted after their victory over Livorno.

He insisted: "Serie A safety has never been mentioned by us. We're better than that and the players know this also. We're high on the table, but it's only early days and we won't boast.

"We go from game-to-game doing our best. Staying up is something we won't discuss because this team is strong and should be shooting for higher than that."
