Mertens: Napoli want second

Napoli midfielder Dries Mertens says his team have not yet given up hope of finishing second in the Serie A table.

The Azzurri trail Roma, who currently occupy that position, by six points and have played a game more but the Belgian believes his side can still secure automatic Champions League qualification.

“We must continue to win if we want to get second place,” Mertens said to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“For us the draw against Genoa was not a good result, we need to look to be winning every game.”

Rafa Benitez’s side face Livorno on Sunday in their next game.
