Cannavaro has Scudetto belief

This could be the season for Napoli to win the Italian championship, says club captain Paolo Cannavaro.

The Azzurri are just a point off the top of the table after collecting 10 points from five games – including wins over Milan and Inter.

"Winning the League would be the maximum for us, it couldn't get any better," the central defender told Radio CRC.

"With the difficulties of Milan and Inter so far this term, this really could be the right year for us to win the Scudetto."

The Milanese clubs have had problematic starts to the season. The Rossoneri have collected five points, while Inter just four.

Napoli have only won the championship on two occasions in the past – back in the Diego Maradona days of 1987 and 1990.
