Mazzarri to wind back the clock

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri hopes to wind back the clock to the Diego Maradona years at the club.

The legendary Argentine playmaker dragged Napoli to a pair of famous Scudetto wins in 1987 and 1990.

Napoli currently lie third in Serie A and remain dark horses in the title race.

Speaking to Il Corriere dello Sport, Mazzarri said: "One day I would like to make Napoli live again the golden age of Maradona."

Asked to predict where his side can finish this season, he replied: "It's risky to unveil your objectives. They say that I am bold, but in reality I am someone who wants to win.

"We have grown since my arrival. We have given signals. We thought about getting off to a good start, but I didn't think about one as good as this.

"I dream that an outsider can dream of a beautiful and clean game. It can happen if everything is correct [i.e there is no perceived corruption in Serie A].

"I don't want to think about the League not being correct."
