Higuain: 'Napoli deserved to qualify'

Gonzalo Higuain said Napoli “deserved to go through” to the Europa League quarter-finals against Porto.

The Partenopei crashed out 3-2 on aggregate after tonight’s 2-2 draw at the San Paolo, having lost the first leg 1-0.

They wasted numerous scoring opportunities and were made to pay for those errors.

“We put in a good performance and created so many chances, so we deserved to go through,” Pipita told Mediaset.

“Their goalkeeper had a great game. Our season does not end here, as we have to look forward and the applause of the fans proves that.

“Our season does not end tonight.”

Napoli are currently third in Serie A and will face Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia Final in May.
