Napoli's Cannavaro fearful of Man City's Dzeko

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has won a minor mental battle in the lead-up to tomorrow night's Champions League clash with Napoli.

The captain of the Naples club, Paolo Cannavaro, believes the Bosnian is the best centre-forward in the business at the moment and indicated that he is not looking forward to marking him at the Stadio San Paolo.

"We are ready, but I fear, above all, Dzeko," said the centre-back. "For me, he is the best centre-forward at the moment.

"I played against him last year when we played a friendly against Wolfsburg and he was really difficult to mark. He is so strong physically."
