I Love Napoli

For all Neopolitans and Maradona Lovers

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has dismissed suggestions that he is about to leave the Italian club.

The team that finished third in the league table last season has made a stunning start to the current campaign after managing to possess the only 100% record so far this season. Napoli have made incredible progress under the regime of Sarri and this has not gone unnoticed at various clubs. He has been regarded as one of the greatest tacticians that Italian football has at the moment. However, he has been able to bring in an exciting style of football at Napoli.

The combination of existing football, strong tactics, and successful results have madeSarri one of the sought-after managers. There has been a lot of speculation linkingSarri with foreign jobs, but the prospect of enticing him from Napoli appears to be difficult at the moment. Apart from being able to challenge for the title, Napoli also offer Champions League football to the manager and the expression that comes along with it.


Pep Guardiola Lauds Napoli as a Team to Fear

Pep Guardiola has held on Napoli as one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. Manchester City have been grouped alongside the Italian outfit in the 2017-18 group stages.

Even though City have been able to avoid a tough group, manager Guardiola says that Napoli should not be treated lightly. In the past, City have largely been drawn against the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Real Madrid in the group stages. It has led to repeated failings in the competition by City, who are yet to win the title even after spending vast sums of money.

Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri was named as the best coach of the top tier Italian football league, Serie A for the season of 2016-17 even though his team could only snatch the 3rd spot.

Surprisingly, he received more votes than MassimilianoAllegri who was able to guide Juventus to their 6th successive Serie A title. Maurizio Sarri received 25 votes of 61 votes which was only 3 more votes than his fellow contender Allegri who could not win it for a 2nd successive year.


Italian striker Mario Balotelli has revealed that he is open to a move to Napoli if Silvio Berlusconi does not want his presence in the Milan setup. The Nice forward was with his brother to see the game between Milan and Inter that ended 2-2.

Whilst celebrating a last gasp goal, a fan asked questions him online where he said: “I support Milan and have a fondness for Manchester City, you shouldn’t get angry because of that.”

Napoli Are Far from Perfect, Warns Sarri

Napoli have been one of the best teams in the Italian Serie A by a significant margin.

Since suffering the 2-1 loss against Juventus in October, the team are undefeated in all competitions – a run that now stretches to 17 games. Napoli secured a 7-1 win over Bologna during the weekend to move ahead of Roma in the second spot. Now, they have established a one-point advantage over Roma and five points over Lazio. Even though the capital club can reclaim the second spot if they win the game in hand, it has been an astonishing turnaround of form from Maurizio Sarri’s team.


Napoli has started the season not as good as they would have wanted and the draw with Sassuolo further dented their hopes of lifting the Serie A this term.

They were set to get a win but a late goal from Gregoire Defrel forced Napoli to share points with their visitors – their third straight stalemate in all competitions.


Napoli were held down in the Serie A title race as Balde Keita cancelled out MarekHamsik's second-half opener in less than three minutes to earn Lazio a 1-1 draw in Saturday's clash at the Stadio San Paolo.

Maurizio Sarri's men were aiming to get back onto the winning lane after losing 2-1 to the defending champions, Juventus last week. The hosts made a strong approach to the match as Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne tirelessly challenged Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti which brought him into action in the opening 45 minutes.

Napoli stronger without Higuain

Pepe Reina has stated that Napoli is a better side without Gonzalo Higuain in the team.

He said that the sale of Higuain has allowed the club to strengthen various positions and this has made them become a much better side. He stated that they have a good manager in Maurizio Sarri and that the latter is constantly looking for ways to improve the team.
