Mazzarri: 'Napoli never give up!'

Walter Mazzarri feels Napoli “were born to suffer and never give up” after yet another last-gasp victory.

The Partenopei beat Steaua Bucharest at the 93rd minute midweek and did it again with Lecce this afternoon.

“We were born to suffer and never give up,” smiled the Coach upon climbing to second place alongside Lazio.

“We knew this game represented a trap, as we were tired and missed so many players. The important thing was to overcome this obstacle.”

The statistics show that 16 of Napoli's 26 goals were scored in the last 20 minutes and this team consistently has heart-stopping finales.

“We never give up. We do waste so many scoring opportunities and should've broken through earlier this afternoon, but everyone believes in what they are doing.

“Lecce clammed up today, so even Inter, Milan or Juventus would've struggled against them.”
