Napoli captain Insigne on Roma thumping: We owed it to Maradona

Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne was happy with their 4-0 win against Roma.

Insigne was quick to pay tribute to Diego Maradona after the triumph.

“The atmosphere certainly gave us extra motivation, as we wanted to pay homage to our idol. It hurts and we cared more than ever tonight to put in a great performance for him and the city that is suffering," Insigne told Sky Sport Italia.

"We approached this game in the best possible way, studied Roma carefully. We have a lot of quality, but at times make avoidable errors and don't have the right mentality.

“I hope this can be a starting point, because if we play like this, we can cause serious problems for anyone. If we keep this up, with our feet on the ground, we can achieve great things."
