Napoli president De Laurentiis confident of Champions League qualification

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis insists there's no panic after missing out on automatic Champions League qualification.

The best they can hope for is qualification into the Champions League play-off round.

"It would've been better to go directly into the group phase, but we are happy because having changed a large part of the squad, the Coach and playing system this was a transitional season," De Laurentiis told TGR Campania.

"Napoli are a top club. Don't forget when we arrived in Serie A we weren't even in the FIFA world ranking. After a few months we got in the top 500 and now we are in the top 30 clubs in the world."
