Napoli president happy for Lavezzi form return

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis was delighted with the two-goal performance of Ezequiel Lavezzi in last night's 3-1 victory over Udinese.

The Argentine has been criticised in recent weeks over his inconsistent form, but Laurentiis said: "I believe that in football we can be wrong: You create heroes and then destroy them in a few weeks.

"Those qualities, however, always are with the player and we cannot pretend that he is a machine."
