Ezequiel Lavezzi has told Napoli fans not to be downhearted. “We are still having an historic season.”
The Partenopei were in second place and three points off leaders Milan before running into two consecutive defeats.
“We are still having an historic season,” Lavezzi told a radio station in Argentina.
“It's only normal that there's a little unhappiness after two defeats on the trot, but we must not let our heads drop.
“Nothing can cancel out what we have achieved up to this moment. We sent an entire city crazy with joy. That seems like a lot to me.”
El Pocho Lavezzi is set to be one of the stars of this summer's Copa America.
“Argentina want to win that trophy at all costs. We're playing on home turf and cannot fail.”
