Mazzarri: Napoli will be back

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri is confident that he’ll see a reaction from his players in the game against Siena.

The Azzurri’s title challenge has come off the rails following losses to Inter and Bologna, as well as the two-point penalty they were handed this week.

“It’s a difficult moment, but I’m certain that the team will get back on the right path,” the tactician stated on Friday.

“We’ve identified the reasons behind our dip. We’ll see against Siena if the things we have discussed are applied.

“I don’t have a magic wand, but I can guarantee that the squad will give everything that it has.”

Napoli have had a rough December to date, but the former Sampdoria Coach is proud of what his players have achieved in 2012-13 so far.

“Despite the points penalty, we have more points now than at the same stage last season.”
