Napoli 'lack winning mentality'

Napoli wasted the chance to close on Juventus and Paolo Cannavaro’s agent believes “they lack that winning mentality.”

The Partenopei could’ve shut the gap at the top of the table to just two points this weekend, but were held 0-0 by Sampdoria to leave it at four points.

“In order to aim for the Scudetto, Napoli would have to win them all, starting from Udinese on Monday,” agent Enrico Fedele told Radio Crc.

“As a fan, I hope Napoli can win the title. As a professional in the football world, I say this is just a dream.

“The truth is the Azzurri have to lock down this second place. That would already be a great success and part of their progress.

“They lack that winning mentality and the only way you earn it is over time. Don’t forget those who are accustomed to travelling at a certain level do not feel altitude sickness. They have done so well up until now due to their hunger.”
