‘Napoli are Juve’s biggest rivals’

Kevin Malcuit’s agent believes Napoli are ‘where they deserve to be’ in Serie A and will be ‘Juventus’ biggest rivals’ this season.

Malcuit has yet to make an official appearance for Napoli since arriving from Lille over the summer, but Bruno Satin assured the right-back was ready to grab his chance.

“Will he debut against Parma? I don’t know, it’s up to the Coach,” he told CalcioNapoli24 after the Partenopei beat Torino 3-1 to take second place.

“I don’t think he has any physical problems, he’s training well and he can’t wait to take to the field.

“The lad hopes to start playing soon. He’s ready, training well and integrated himself into the squad perfectly. His hair? I didn’t recommend that style to him…

“I think Napoli are where they deserve to be. They took a big blow against Sampdoria but recovered by doing well.

“Ancelotti? He has huge experience, above all in managing certain situations and giving a squad serenity.

“When times are tough, he reassures not only the team but also the club. Napoli the ‘anti-Juventus’? It’s clear they’re the Bianconeri’s biggest rivals, but Juve’s consistency allows them to keep picking up points.”
