Blerim Dzemaili scored a hat-trick against his old club Torino and admits “I felt a little bit bad” after Napoli’s 5-3 victory.
The Swiss midfielder netted a treble at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin during last night’s thrilling showdown.
“It is a special game for me, as Torino launched my Serie A career,” he told journalists.
“I must admit I felt a little bit bad for Torino, but this stadium brings me good luck. I am also happy for my team, as we had struggled in recent matches, but emerged strongly.
“However, we ran too many risks and have got to improve in defence, as mistakes like that can cost us dearly.”
Napoli kept the gap from leaders Juventus to nine points, but are only two clear of Milan.
“Juventus cannot be reached if they continue like this. We should look over our shoulders, as Milan are very close,” concluded Dzemaili.
