Cannavaro: 'Napoli like 1990!'

Paolo Cannavaro still remembers when Napoli won the Super Cup in 1990, thrashing Juventus 5-1, and wants to replicate that moment.

“This game really fires us up and the fact we’re playing against Juve makes it even more special,” said the captain in today’s Press conference.

“We’d love to bring the Italian Super Cup to the city, just as the club did so many years ago.”

Diego Armando Maradona’s side demolished the Bianconeri 5-1 at the San Paolo in 1990 to take the Italian Super Cup.

The two sides meet again in Beijing on Saturday, kick-off 13.00 UK time, after Napoli won the Coppa Italia Final 2-0 back in May.

“Will winning the Italian Super Cup create more pressure and expectations on us? We can’t worry about that. In any case, let’s focus on this match first and foremost, the rest can come later.”
