Cannavaro: No tragedy at Napoli

Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro insists there is nothing tragic about his side's 3-0 defeat to Milan on Monday.

The Partenopei had a chance to go joint top of Serie A, but now lie six points adrift of the League leaders.

"Our dream doesn't change," Cannavaro said: "We mustn't make it out to be as tragic as some people are depicting.

"We are used to always looking forward. It's the right thing to do right now.

"It's true that we are running behind, but if we get the points there shouldn't be any problems.

"There are many teams looking to survive in Serie A and this is always dangerous.

"The second half of the season is another League in itself, some teams are playing for their lives.

"Juve and Roma are far behind. I would concentrate more on Lazio and Udinese.

"The Zebrette are having an exceptional season. The most important game is Sunday's.

"Brescia will defend. There is a lot of motivation. We have the positive anger to get a result."
