Jorginho thanked Napoli fans for staying “by our side” after a shock 4-2 home defeat to Roma. “We must work with self-belief.”
The Partenopei were beaten at the Stadio San Paolo after initially taking the lead through Lorenzo Insigne.
Earlier this evening, Paulo Dybala scored deep into stoppages for a 1-0 Juventus victory at Lazio, so the gap is just one point and the Bianconeri have a game in hand.
“To be honest, I don’t think the Juve result weighed on us. I saw a team that played well and incidents just went against us, which then caused us to lose our usual confidence and we started making the wrong decisions,” the midfielder told Mediaset Premium.
“We must continue to work with self-belief, the way we have done throughout the campaign. Unfortunately, we lost tonight, but it was pleasing to see the fans were on our side at the final whistle.
“We can only thank them and want to repay them by getting back to work on achieving a dream.”
