Pochettino: 'Napoli most beautiful in Europe'

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said Napoli “play the most beautiful football in Europe,” but won’t underestimate Juventus.

Spurs fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Juve in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie, and the Bianconeri are battling Napoli for the Serie A title.

“Napoli can win the Scudetto,” Pochettino told Radio CRC.

“Maurizio Sarri’s side play the most beautiful football in Europe and whenever I get the chance, I always like to watch the Azzurri games.

“They will fight to the end with Juventus for the Scudetto. I have no need to give Sarri advice on how to deal with Juve, as he is already one of the best Coaches in the world.

“Sarri is Sarri and Pep Guardiola is Guardiola, they both have their own style that they try to improve day after day.

“We got a good result in Turin, but qualification is still wide open. We must work hard to earn our place in the Quarter-Finals.”

Last night, Napoli crushed Cagliari 5-0 in Sardinia and Jose Callejon was among those on target.

“I’ve been watching Callejon since his time in Spain and I feel very fond of him because I was his Coach at Espanyol,” added Pochettino.

“Could I be the future Coach of Napoli? I’d have to ask permission from Diego Maradona first!”
