Napoli coach Ancelotti: We deserved more from Fiorentina draw

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was left frustrated after their 0-0 draw with Fiorentina.

Napoli failed to find the net for their third Serie A away fixture in a row.

“We dropped two points that we would've deserved for attacking from start to finish," Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

“In some ways, it was an impeccable performance, but we weren't clinical enough in front of goal and were forced to make do with a point.

“It's true we had a little more difficulty building from the back, as Fiorentina were pressing us high, but once we got past that, we did more than enough to deserve a victory.

“Fabian Ruiz is different to Marek Hamsik, but his partnership with Allan is very reliable and provides more attacking intent. It changes the vision of our game to a degree, but not much else.

“In the first half, we were giving Alex Meret too many back-passes that were difficult to handle, but we found a way out and then took control with numerous clear-cut scoring opportunities. We've just got to work on our finishing and keeping a cool head when clear on goal."
