Napoli coach Mazzarri hits out at Mourinho over latest taunt

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has hit out at Inter Milan counterpart Jose Mourinho.

Mazzarri was the subject of Mou's latest sniping comment earlier this week:

"It makes me laugh when I here some Presidents compare me with their Coaches who haven't won anything other than a Tuscan Cup or a Reggio Calabria Cup."

The reference was clearly to Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis and Mazzarri.

"Anyone with intellect can understand that any phrase from that man does not warrant a response," replied Mazzarri.

He faces a more important test, as Napoli's result against Sampdoria will effectively decide who goes into the Champions League.

"Since I arrived here, we have earned four more points than the Blucerchiati. Without the slip-ups against Parma and Cagliari, we would've been here challenging for fourth place too.

"I am someone who is never happy, so I always want my players to give their best. Of course we can be motivated, especially in an arena like Marassi. Sampdoria know that well."
