RB Salzburg coach Marco Rose: Napoli can win Europa League

RB Salzburg coach Marco Rose says Napoli can win the Europa League.

Salzburg beat Napoli last night but were eliminated from the competition on aggregate.

Rose stated: “Unfortunately, we were eliminated and you can't give Napoli half a chance, or they will punish you. We still take positives from the experience and were superior tonight.

“We are satisfied to have won, but also a little disappointed that it wasn't enough. I am proud of my lads and their performance, as it was a spectacular two-legged tie with Napoli. I also thank the fans, who stayed behind to applaud us after the final whistle.

Napoli are among the favourites to win the Europa League and really impressed me, as they scored three goals at home and got one here too. They have a lot of quality and in my view are the favourites.

“I hope Napoli win the Europa League, as I think they're the best team remaining."
