Semplici: 'SPAL ready for Napoli'

Leonardo Semplici is confident SPAL “won’t rest on our laurels” or hold back against Napoli, as they can target 10th place.

“It’s the most wonderful feeling, being sure of Serie A safety with three rounds left to play. Nobody would’ve thought it possible, so we are happy and now want to make the most of these remaining games by increasing our points tally,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“Tomorrow we are facing a Napoli side of absolute quality and it’ll be difficult to get a result, but the lads have always shown up against the big clubs. I hope for an exceptional performance tomorrow too, although it’ll take an exceptional game to get something from Napoli.

“It’d be difficult for us to secure 10th place, but it’s only right that we give it our best. We haven’t been able to relax all season, but now we have three games against important teams and don’t want to rest on our laurels.

“I won’t be resting anyone, as I will use the best XI at my disposal. Jasmin Kurtic is in doubt, as he is not in good shape and struggling with a heavy bruise, so we’ll evaluate at the final minute.”
