Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon is keeping his feet on the ground despite his club’s fantastic start to the season.
The Azzurri are leading Serie A – with Roma – after winning all four of their matches so far, while they also beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week.
“The new signings have made a good contribution to the side,” Bigon told the Corriere dello Sport after the 2-1 win at Milan on Sunday.
“They have integrated well into the squad, they are professional and have arrived with great enthusiasm.
“Will this be our year for the Scudetto? I don’t know, but we will be competing for it,” continued the official.
“We can do well and a positive campaign is within our grasp.”
Bigon sold star striker Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer for €64.5m, but he brought in a variety of new faces.
Amongst them were goalkeeper Pepe Reina, defender Raul Albiol, attacking midfielder Jose Callejon and striker Gonzalo Higuain.
The latter, netted from Real Madrid for €37.5m, has scored three goals in four Serie A games so far for the Azzurri.
The Argentine also grabbed the winner at San Siro yesterday.
