Toni: Napoli lack ‘winning mentality’

Luca Toni claims Napoli lack a “winning mentality” as the former Italy striker “didn’t like the way they decided to abandon cups for the League.”

Napoli lead Serie A by a point but at the expense of their participation in the Coppa Italia and European competition, prompting Toni to take issue with the way the Partenopei were going about their business.

“The beautiful thing is that [Serie A] is the only European League still up for grabs,” the ex-Fiorentina and Bayern Munich hitman told RMC Sport.

“I didn’t like the way Napoli decided to abandon cups for the League. That’s not the right way to acquire a winning mentality, even if they’re still a great team.

“Juventus are actually trying to move forward in every competition because of this ruthlessness in wanting to win everything.

“[The title race] will be a good fight until the end of the season.”
