President Aurelio De Laurentiis praises the 'fantastic' Lorenzo Insigne as Napoli's 'representative', and discusses the Scudetto campaign.

The young Italian striker is the star of the Partenopei at the moment alongside teammate Gonzalo Higuain, and with two goals and one assist he was instrumental in demolishing Milan 4-0.

“Insigne is fantastic when he plays next to Higuain, a Neapolitan with an Argentinian,” De Laurentiis told Italian show Tiki Taka.

Sacchi: ‘Napoli like my Milan’

Arrigo Sacchi believes Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli are similar to his great Milan team of the late 80s.

The Rossoneri lifted two European Cups with Sacchi at the helm, as well as the 1988 Scudetto, and the tactician sees similarities with today’s Napoli.

“The style of play makes the difference,” Sacchi explained, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“The players improve through their commitment and their role in the play and the team. [Lionel] Messi is the best player in the world for Barcelona, but not for Argentina.

A topsy-turvy start to the season has seen Fiorentina top the standings for the first time since 1999,  with Milan, Juventus, Roma and Napoli all lacking in consistency.

“The League is proving to be at a very good level,” Conte told assembled media during a Press conference at Coverciano.
