Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni says he'd welcome taking the Napoli job.Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri is yet to consider new contract talks at the Azzurri.

"I always want to win," Trapattoni told Il Mattino newspaper. "Even returning to a Serie A side like Napoli - why not?

"Am I putting myself forward for the job? Everyone knows my motto: never say never in football. I also tell club Presidents: don't look at my birth certificate, because that doesn't reflect my real age."
