Napoli defender Manolas delighted beating Inter Milan: But semifinal still 50-50

Napoli defender Kostas Manolas says they must not celebrate too soon after their Coppa Italia win over Inter Milan.

Napoli won the first-leg of last night's semifinal 1-0 via Fabian Ruiz's effort.

Manolas said at the final whistle: “After a heavy home defeat to Lecce, we put in a great performance this evening and all the lads deserve credit.

“We lifted our heads against a strong team that is challenging for the Scudetto at the moment.

"Qualification is still 50-50, because Inter are a great team, they will come to the San Paolo looking to play their game, so we want to win the second leg too."
