‘We did extraordinary things at Napoli’

Walter Mazzarri has reflected on saying goodbye to Napoli, but declined comment on his replecament at the San Paolo or his future at Inter.

The 51-year-old resigned as Napoli Coach on the last day of the League season after three-and-a-half years in charge, later agreeing to take over at Inter for 2013-14.

“With Napoli in the last few years we have done really extraordinary things. The choices that I have taken have been hard. They are close to my heart,” reflected Mazzarri to Radio Marte today.

“Since I decided to leave Napoli, I have taken my things home and emptied my locker, in life you have to look forward.

“I am a little excited at the moment so I prefer not to talk about the choice made for my future.

“Out of respect for Napoli, I will not say anything about who will sit in my place.

“I send a big salute to all of Napoli’s fans for the love they gave me.

“I hope I have reciprocated the love they have shown me, they have given so much to this cause.”

Mazzarri is a known exponent of a three-man defensive system and confirmed that he intends to use it once more with Inter.

“I have used it for many years and as long as it works, I will go on like this. Juve has won two League titles with it.

“At the same time, it is clear that there will be variations to be made during a game, as I did often over the course of this season.”
