Fabio Cannavaro is delighted to see Napoli on track to win their first Scudetto in decades, believing that the credit “is mainly due to Luciano Spalletti”.
The Partenopei are only a few weeks away from mathematically confirming their first championship win since the days of Diego Armando Maradona. “This title is a different story from the previous ones. Napoli won it, but it was good for Italian soccer. The domination of Spalletti’s team forces the other clubs to aim at different goals. And so we find ourselves with five teams in the European semi-finals. And this is good for the movement. I think of Sevilla, for example, in recent years, not being able to aim to win La Liga, they focused on the Europa League, gaining international prestige. Spalletti has achieved an excellent balance between the game and teamwork. Not only does he play international soccer, but he is effective and successful. He has achieved something that perhaps he did not even believe in the beginning. I remember the first press conferences of Luciano, he regretted the departure of Koulibaly and others. But then he was good at creating an exceptional system. Because you, the opponent, think that you block Lobotka, and you find the fullbacks who come to the midfield to build, “said Cannavaro to La Gazzetta dello Sport
