Mazzarri calls for Napoli pride

Walter Mazzarri wants Napoli to show their “pride in a special game against Juventus” after their thrashing at Inter.

The Coach claimed his team “struggled with the pressure of big matches” after a 3-1 loss at San Siro on Thursday.

“We lost and must never forget each side has a specific quality level. To overcome those obstacles, everything has to work perfectly,” said Mazzarri ahead of tonight's San Paolo showdown.

Line-ups: Toni-Amauri in Naples

New Juventus buy Luca Toni starts alongside Amauri, dropping Alex Del Piero, while Napoli rely on their young trident.

Since Fabio Quagliarella's devastating knee injury ruled him out for six months, the Bianconeri brought in Toni from Genoa on Friday.

He is thrown straight into the starting XI, but his partner is surprisingly Amauri rather than captain Del Piero.

There are changes elsewhere too with Zdenek Grygera and Armand Traore stepping in for Fredrik Sorensen and Fabio Grosso.

Mazzarri: 'A pleasure to watch Napoli'

Walter Mazzarri says it's “a pleasure to watch Napoli play football” as long as they have the courage to push opponents like Juventus.

The Coach had criticised his men after Thursday's 3-1 defeat at Inter for feeling the pressure of the big game too much, but swept Juve aside 3-0 this evening with an Edinson Cavani hat-trick.

“The transformation from the Inter match was down to courage and belief in our own abilities,” he said.

Ogbonna wanted by duo

Genoa and Napoli are the latest Serie A sides to show an interest in Torino stopper Angelo Ogbonna.

The Under-21 international could be sold by the Serie B giants this January should a big enough offer be tabled.

Genoa and Napoli are looking for a new defender and Ogbonna has been identified as an achievable objective.

Ogbonna, still only 22, is highly rated in the peninsula and is an Italian Under-21 international regular.

Napoli: 'Get well soon, Quaglia'

Napoli have wished Juventus ace Fabio Quagliarella a speedy recovery after the Azzurri-owned striker was ruled out for the season.

The Italian international, who joined the Old Lady in the summer, damaged knee ligaments in Thursday's 4-1 loss against Parma and he'll be sidelined for between four and six months.

The injury rules Quagliarella out of Sunday's game against Napoli, a match that would have seen him receive a frosty reception from the San Paolo faithful given his decision to leave his hometown club.

Kharja makes Napoli call

Houssine Kharja is on the verge of leaving Genoa after he spoke tactics with Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri.

The attacking midfielder has been targeted by the Azzurri and a January move does now look imminent.

"I knew that the Napoli boss wanted to talk with Houssine and the telephone conversation took place," noted agent Giuseppe Galli.

"It was a sensible thing to do because the Azzurri are having a wonderful season and Kharja wants to earn his place in the side without upsetting the balance of the squad."

The Switzerland international is a long-term transfer target of Napoli's and it's thought they will make a bid over the course of this month.

Napoli to touch up Cavani contract

Napoli are keen to reward Edinson Cavani for his form this season by touching up his contract with the club.

The 23-year-old has already found the net 15 times since his arrival from Palermo in the summer.

Cavani had put pen to paper on a five-year deal worth €1.8m a season, but Napoli feel they need to improve the terms of that arrangement amid interest from Manchester City, Juventus and Inter.
