Sarri welcomes Napoli pressure after Palermo win

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was delighted with their 3-0 rout of Palermo.

Jose Callejon struck twice, with Marek Hamsik also getting on the scoresheet.

"At this stage of the season it's difficult to get much training in because of the schedule. I have great faith in this squad and am convinced we've got a very strong side," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

“Tonight I chose Piotr Zielinski because he was with me for a year at Empoli and therefore knows my football. I wanted wingers who were good at bombing forward and had to rest some who returned from international duty tired.

“Naples is a very demanding place and I take it as love rather than pressure. The fans are in love with this team, they have shown they can forgive us when we make mistakes, so I don't feel excessive pressure. I feel more the need to make them happy sooner or later, which I would love."
