Napoli coach Edy Reja is delighted with the commitment and form of his players in preseason.
"Of course," said Reja. "We are working a lot and intensely. This is a good group and has demonstrated its strength in these last years. What's more we have added to the squad new signings that have lifted our quality.
"I believe that we deserve great respect and consideration as a team which has been promoted twice and now is getting ready to play in the top championship."
