Napoli striker Gabbiadini pleased with Coppa goal

Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini was delighted with his goal in their 1-1 draw against Lazio in the first-leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal.

Miroslav Klose put Lazio ahead before Gabbiadini earned Napoli their draw.

"It's important to get a draw and score away from home. Considering the way the game was going, it's a draw worth it's weight in gold," Gabbiadini told Rai Sport.

"Lazio did better in the first half and are a strong side, so we did well to fight back with a different attitude after the break."

He added: "I can put it in the net or my teammates, it doesn't matter as long as Napoli score. We have a tough game every three days this month, so we have to keep pushing."
