Magnin: 'I hope Napoli win Europa'

FC Zurich Coach Ludovic Magnin believes his team “went out of the Europa League with heads held high” and hopes Napoli win the tournament.

The Swiss side had already lost 3-1 at home in the first leg of this Europa League Round of 32, and fell 2-0 at the Stadio San Paolo.

“We played well and showed a different attitude to the first leg,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“We had our scoring opportunities and I am content with our performance, as the gap between us and Napoli was less obvious tonight.

“Napoli have a lot of experience and I hope they can win the Europa League, that way we can say we were only eliminated by the best side in the tournament!

“Over the two legs, I saw a Napoli team that was solid and had a lot of talented players. Piotr Zielinski really impressed me in Switzerland.

“I feel we went out of the Europa League with our heads held high.”
