Commenting upon Napoli success over Legia Warszaw, Partenopei boss, Luciano Spalletti, stated:

"We weren't able to break the deadlock early on but we didn't let it affect us. We made sure we didn't get caught out on the counter and kept our shape well. We couldn't have done much better than we did tonight: my players played with purpose and showed how keen they are to do well in this competition.

We have some talented attacking players and we know we're capable of producing a goal at any time. The main thing is you hold your shape during the game so that you can be in with a chance of winning it until the end

“Footballing intelligence is the key. When a player plays for the others he knows he'll benefit from it himself. These players really wanted to prove themselves after last season and they're showing what they can do. We're all pulling in the same direction because we're determined to progress in Europe. We must win our next few games if we're to top this group”.
