Napoli can finish third, says Inler

Napoli can still finish in the top three this season, midfielder Gokhan Inler has stated on Monday afternoon.

The Azzurri have struggled for consistency this term as they’ve had to juggle Serie A with Champions League commitments.

However, four straight wins the top flight means they are now just five points shy of third-placed Lazio.

“We believe that we can get into third and qualify for the Champions League next season,” the Swiss international told Sky Sport Italia. “We’re a strong side.

“However, we have to keep our feet on the ground. We have to work hard and keep concentrated.”

Napoli are still in this season’s competition as they are 3-1 up from the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie against Chelsea.
