Insigne: 'A starting point'

Lorenzo Insigne said Napoli “needed” the win against Perugia and wants the Partenopei to use the Coppa Italia triumph as “a starting point”.

The captain scored a brace against the Griffoni in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia and helped Gennaro Gattuso’s men to overcome the Serie B side with a comfortable win.

“This must be a starting point, this win was needed,” he told RAI Sport after the match. “We have to stay calm and improve.

The Azzurri can calmly focus on their next challenge against Fiorentina in the League and Insigne insisted the new coach is helping them to develop.

“Now we have another important game against Fiorentina,” he added. “We have to face it in the best possible way.

“I am calm and try to improve thanks to the advice from Mr. Gattuso. Slowly, we will be growing.”
