Allan: 'Win worth more than three points'

Allan claims the fightback to beat Genoa 2-1 at Marassi is “worth more than three points” for Napoli in the pouring rain.

They were trailing to a Christian Kouame header when play was halted at the 59th minute for a waterlogged pitch.

When it resumed, Fabian Ruiz equalised and Davide Biraschi accidentally turned a Mario Rui free kick into his own net.

“Considering how the victory arrived, it’s worth even more than three points,” Allan told DAZN.

“It was a hard-fought win in a really difficult arena, even more difficult to play in today with the atmospheric conditions.

“We won and that’s the important thing, we can go into the break for international duty with more confidence.”

Juventus visit Milan tomorrow evening, while Inter have a tricky trip to Atalanta, so it could be a very positive round for Napoli.

“I’m sure Milan-Juve will be entertaining to watch, but we mustn’t think about it too much. There’s a long way to go, we must focus on ourselves and look forward.”
