Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri: I'll never take my success for granted

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has thanked president Aurelio de Laurentiis for hiring him.

Sarri says he'll never forget how hard it was to get where he is.

“When talking about this, it's hard to have clear ideas. Being at Napoli is an enormous satisfaction for me. After the seasons with Empoli people spoke highly of me, but only De Laurentiis had the guts to actually hire me.

“If I have to think of the next five years, that's hard for me to do. I didn't get rich with football so far in my career, so on my next contract I want to get rich!" he laughed.

“For two years I didn't pick up a wage, but to complain now would be an insult to those who get the train to commute at 6am."
