Napoli attacker Goran Pandev is sorry Walter Mazzarri will leave this summer.

Pandev confirmed Mazzarri's departure before kickoff to last night's defeat to AS Roma.

"Mazzarri told us he will announce after the game whether he'll stay or not," said Pandev.

"It's a real shame, because he has done such great things, but life continues. Football and Napoli continue even without Mazzarri."
