Chievo Verona striker Sergio Pellissier is happy he turned down Napoli in the summer.

Pellissier says he would have found it tough to obtain a spot in the starting XI had he joined the Partenopei.

"I was linked on many occasions to Napoli, but in the end, we never got to the end of the negotiations," the striker told Radio CRC. "Had I joined, I would've had to work extremely hard to get a place in the side with the likes of [Edinson] Cavani, [Ezequiel] Lavezzi and [Marek] Hamsik.

"I don't think Napoli would have taken a starting XI spot away from them."
