Napoli coach Edy Reja was full of praise for two-goal Marcelo Zalayeta after yesterday's 2-0 victory over Catania.

Reja said afterwards: "Our position in the table is very interesting and I always want to remain in the top half. It was very important to win today so we could maintain our positive performances.

"Marcelo Zalayeta is a fantastic player who already did well at Juventus. He has technique, helps the midfield, provides assists and is decisive."
