Napoli coach Roberto Donadoni is staying calm ahead of their clash with former club Livorno.

Donadoni took Livorno to fifth place before being promptly dismissed by president Aldo Spinelli.

He said: "Clearly I cannot deny this is an important day for me, but it is above all a difficult obstacle to overcome.

"Livorno are a team who play football based on hard work, sacrifice and determination. We must take the initiative and be careful not to give them any space on the counter-attack."
