Marek Hamsik complimented Fiorentina on their performance, but Napoli “sent a signal” by beating the leaders.
The Partenopei climbed up to fourth place and have won six of their last seven games in all competition, scoring 20 goals and conceded just two.
“It was a very tough game and I compliment Fiorentina, as they played very well, but with this result we sent a signal to the rest of Serie A,” Hamsik told Mediaset Premium after a 2-1 victory.
“Is the Scudetto possible? We want to continue along this path and with results like this we can go far. We can’t stop the fans dreaming.
“I don’t know if we can win, but I’m happy that the fans are back in the stadium. There was a great atmosphere today and we must thank them for that.”
Since moving to a 4-3-3 system, Napoli have been practically unstoppable.
“I am a player who always wants to do well, but I do feel better in a three-man midfield. I’ve done well here in the past and I am happy to be back in that position. It takes hard work, but I like that.
“Playing 4-3-1-2 used up a lot of energy, but this way we have more protection for the defence and can therefore be more aggressive going forward.
“In pre-season we worked on two systems, but we changed against Club Brugge in the Europa League, it went really well and so we stuck with it. Maurizio Sarri believes in us and we are starting to believe in ourselves too.”
