Mazzarri wants full support

Walter Mazzarri has called on Napoli’s fans to help motivate the players in their final push for a Champions League qualification place.

The Vesuviani, who reached the Last 16 of the competition this season, are in contention to return to it through their League position.

However, tied on 55 points with Lazio, Udinese and Inter, the team are in need of an added level of support from the San Paolo faithful, says Coach Mazzarri.

“We have three big League encounters and the public will support us, as they did in the most important European matches this season - it is support that has always accompanied us and enabled us to play well against the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Villarreal and Bayern Munich.

“The fans have always been involved with us and now we are at a crucial moment - three important finals to face with heat and passion, starting with the match against Palermo,” declared Mazzarri ahead of welcoming the Rosanero this Tuesday.

“Everyone together for us to help obtain another result. I’d like to see my team play as they did in the second half against Roma, but if this fails to happen, it is important that the goal is then reached with everyone’s help.”
