Walter Mazzarri hailed the never-say-die spirit of his Napoli squad. “This 4-3 is proof we just do not give up, ever.”
The Vesuviani fought back from 2-0 down to beat Lazio in the final minutes with Edinson Cavani's hat-trick.
“This 4-3 result is proof we just do not give up, ever, especially in front of our own fans,” declared the Coach as they climbed into second place.
“Even when 2-0 down we still believed and I think at the end we deserved the victory. We went behind at the first Lazio effort, so for a while it seemed like the game was cursed.
“When you are trailing in such an important game with so much expectation, it's not easy to react. We made a few tactical mistakes, especially on the second goal, so we've got to fix those uncharacteristic errors.
“Cavani was exceptional. It's a shame he got that pointless yellow card and will be suspended against Bologna, but we'll have him for the next six games.”
