Ancelotti: Napoli's midfield the best

Carlo Ancelotti claims Napoli have ‘the best midfield in Italy’ and that Juventus ‘aren’t out of reach’.

Napoli lost Jorginho to Chelsea over the summer and are eight points behind Juve at the top of Serie A, yet Ancelotti’s side are the Bianconeri’s nearest challengers.

“Koulibaly’s one of the best centre-backs in the world with Sergio Ramos, Varane and those of Juventus, who are more so as a partnership than in their own right,” continued the Coach to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Do I need a physical striker? It depends on how you want to play. We haven’t needed one until now because we exploit our opponents through depth and verticality.

“How far can we go? I don’t know, but we have so much potential and showed it in our Champions League group, which was very difficult.

“We have the best midfield in Italy, I’m convinced of that. Are Juventus unreachable? No.

“Juve are very strong and continue to be, but they’re not out of reach.

“Of course, to keep up with them, you have to work miracles.”
