Napoli Coach Walter Mazzarri has spoken ahead of the Italian Super Cup clash against Juventus, claiming that his side are more motivated for the trophy.
“The Supercoppa has been missing from Napoli for 25 years, so we strongly want to win it” he told Tuttosport.
The side’s last success was in 1990, when Diego Maradona’s men cruised to a 5-1 victory over Roberto Baggio’s Juventus.
Mazzarri’s men already beat the Bianconeri 2-0 in the Coppa Italia Final in May, but they meet again in Beijing on August 11.
“We won the first trophy of my management this year and now, just a few months on, we want to continue winning.
“Success causes self-esteem to grow as well as bringing prestigious trophies.
“Juve also want to win it, but maybe we’re hungrier than them.”
