Napoli skipper Cannavaro: Mazzarri just like Sir Alex

Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro has likened coach Walter Mazzarri to Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Cannavaro is back after having his betting ban thrown out on appeal.

"I was born in Naples, a fan of Napoli, with the dream of Napoli. My blood is Azzurro, so who should wear it if not me?

"I would only let one other man wear the armband. He is not from Naples, but is the real expression of this Napoli side: Mazzarri. He may not be physically playing on the pitch, but it's as if he were. I see Mazzarri as an Italian Sir Alex Ferguson."
