Napoli coach Spalletti seeks to cool expectations after victory over Cagliari

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti refused to get carried away after their 2-0 defeat of Cagliari.

In the three matches played over the last week, Napoli scored 10 goals and kept three clean sheets.

“We have already lost. We have already lost in previous years and know how that feels. We lost to Benevento during a friendly this season, because whenever we wear the Napoli jersey, that is an official match," Spalletti told DAZN.

“What we need to improve is the final third, as we tend to reach the edge of the box and then not break through. That is something we have to work on, transforming all this possession into clear-cut shots on target.

“We still need to do better. There is potential, we played well tonight and were always in control. If we had killed it off earlier, that would've been better.

“Now people's expectations are high around us and we'll have to see how we react when there are difficult moments. We must be aware of where we are, where we want to be and that other teams will kick into gear soon.

“You can see there are teams that are still moving up the gears, they need to find form and when they do, they'll put together six wins in a row too."
