Jorginho agent: ‘Different league in winter’

Jorginho’s agent says Napoli just have to get through the tough winter period to put together a Scudetto challenge.

The Partenopei have scored just three times in their past five games, and drew 0-0 with Chievo at the weekend, missing the chance to return to the top of Serie A.

“Clearly the players have to be managed,” Joao Santos explained to Radio Crc.

“The data on goals isn’t just bad luck, Napoli played two midweek matches with Manchester City, and yesterday Fiorentina played anti-football.

“This intense winter in Europe is a different league, you just need to win games 1-0. Napoli are there, things aren’t going badly.

“The most important thing is that Napoli are a point off Inter and a point ahead of Juventus, if the team were to confirm this position in March it would give them confidence for the season finale.

“The speed of Napoli’s play, which is key to everything, is reduced in winter. They just have to make sure they don’t fall too far behind in the table.”
