Napoli coach Spalletti delighted with his attack for victory over Legia Warsaw

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti praised his players after their 3-0 Europa League defeat of Legia Warsaw.

Lorenzo Insigne, Victor Osimhen and Matteo Politano struck the goals for the hosts.

“It was difficult to break them down, but we never lost our organisation, because losing that can create gaps and it becomes very dangerous," Spalletti told Sky Italia.

“This Legia Warsaw side beat Leicester City, let's not forget. As time wore on, we didn't lose our heads, we continued to have patience and waited for luck to turn our way."

Spalletti added: “When you have so many attacking players, we can seek variations and try new ways to break down the opposition. With Osimhen, Mertens and Insigne on the field, it becomes easier to find that moment of magic.

“We maintained the balance anyway, Elmas worked so hard, and when you have this attitude in your players, it becomes simple for a coach.

“I am very happy, I think it's difficult to play better than we did tonight. At least the players gave a response to anyone suggesting Napoli don't care about the Europa League."
