Diawara: ‘Torino game fundamental’

Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara says it’s “fundamental” to take all three points against Torino on Saturday.

With Inter playing on Saturday afternoon, the Partenopei will know the result when they kick off in Turin three hours later.

“We’re waiting for a very important game on Saturday,” Diawara explained on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“We’ll do everything to win it. The dip we’ve had in the last few games can happen to any team, we’ll work to over come it.

“As President [Aurelio] De Laurentiis said, it’s not important to be top now, what matters is May. Getting points would be fundamental for us.”

The Guinean scored against Manchester City in the Champions League, in front of his idol Yaya Touré…

“I’m only 20, but I’ve played in certain games I could only have dreamed of. Football is a job for me now, but it’s always been my great passion and I continue to enjoy it.

“The Manchester City goal? It was very emotional, I scored in front of my childhood idol. I’ll never forget it.”
