Novellino: World Cup break plays in Napoli favour

Former Sampdoria coach Walter Novellino says Napoli will win the Serie A title this season.

Novellino can't see the Azzurri letting things slip.

He told TMW Radio: “I don't think Napoli can go down, because they have players in amazing condition, like (Stanislav) Lobotka and (Piotr) Zielinski for example.

"I think it's a complete team, because it's doing great mentally and now it'll also have the opportunity to breathe physically.

"At the European level we are seeing what it can do. Many thought that the squad had weakened, but this was not the case, above all thanks to the work of the club.

"Those who left are players who have given a lot to Napoli, but sometimes replacement is needed and the new things are hidden in the replacement.

"Even (Luciano) Spalletti was criticised a lot during the summer, but he has the advantage of being frank with the players, a factor that has united everyone a bit."
