Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis rates their striker Edinson Cavani as better than AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Cavani has scored an injury-time winner in back-to-back games, lifting Napoli to second in Serie A where they sit just three points behind League leaders Milan.

“I prefer Cavani to Ibrahimovic,” De Laurentiis smiled. “He is younger and my player.”

Speaking to the club's official website, the movie mogul hastened to add: “It was a great victory, one that was strongly desired by the entire team.

“Even before our goal there were two fine saves from Morgan De Sanctis, then our champion Edinson Cavani pulled out something special.

“I am delighted for the supporters, especially those who came to follow us against Steaua and Lecce.”
